Billy Smith drove in six runs with a grand-slam homer, a double and a triple to pace the Baltimore Orioles to a 14-6 victory over the Indians in Cleveland last night.
Smith's grand slam, his fifth homer of the season, capped Baltimore's six-run second inning. He doubled in a run in a six-run third inning.
Jim Palmer (10-6) got the victory pitching 5 1/2 innings in preparation for next week's American League playoff. The Orioles had 15 hits.
