That four-game winning streak

What better way to follow a seven-game losing streak than with the longest winning streak of the season? Sure, the Orioles beat up on the bad-but-not-quite-as-bad Kansas City Royals for two straight wins, followed by two more against the Tampa Bay Rays, but a win's a win. Manny Machado hit two home runs, including his eighth career grand slam, in a 9-4 win over Tampa Bay on May 11, and David Hess pitched six effective innings in his major league debut May 12, a 6-3 win over the Rays, to bring the Orioles to 12-27.
