(TSX / STATS) -- BALTIMORE -- Marwin Gonzalez was not supposed to be batting in the sixth inning for the Houston Astros, and it may have been better for the Baltimore Orioles if he hadn't.

Gonzalez belted a pinch-hit, three-run homer off Darren O'Day, sparking a five-run sixth that gave Houston the lead for good in an 8-4 win over Baltimore on Saturday night.

Baltimore (46-51) took a 4-1 lead into the sixth, but starter Chris Tillman gave up a two-run homer to Yuli Gurriel that was originally ruled a double. After a review, it was changed to a home run.
