After dropping the first two games of the series the Orioles secured a 7-1 victory over Tampa Bay Saturday.

All-Star John Means got back on track with a solid performance. Means allowed just one earned run over seven innings, along with seven strikeouts.

Catcher Pedro Severino busted the game wide-open in the third inning. With a 1-0 lead, Severino blasted his first ever grand slam to extend the lead to 5-0.

In the next inning, infielders Hanser Alberto and Jonathan Villar hit back-to-back solo homeruns to add two runs to the Orioles lead.

Baltimore will look to even the weekend series with a win Sunday. Dylan Bundy will get the ball Sunday. With a 5-13 record, Bundy has been solid of late. After an efficient seven innings against Kansas City, Bundy will look to improve his 4.13 ERA in August.
