The Orioles staged a huge rally against the usually-stingy Royals bullpen in the bottom of the eighth inning last night, scoring 10 runs in an eventual 14-8 win. As you’ll see in the video below, they hit two grand slams along the way…

The Orioles are the seventh team in the modern era to hit two grand slams in the same inning and the first since the Mets did it against the Cubs on July 16, 2006.

By the way, what you didn’t see in that video was Chris Davis being hit in the back with a pitch two batters after Manny Machado hit the second home run (it was only a solo shot) of the inning. Sensing intent, Davis slammed his bat into the ground in frustration. After warnings were issued to both benches, Orioles manager Buck Showalter came out to argue and was ejected from the game. Yep, this inning had pretty much everything.
