BALTIMORE—Gunnar Henderson drove in three runs with a two-run home run and a single, and Jordan Westburg and Ryan O’Hearn hit two-run homers to power the Orioles to an 11-3 win over the Minnesota Twins before 18,108 at Camden Yards on Tuesday night.

It was the third straight win for the Orioles (11-6), who pounded Minnesota (6-10) starter Chris Paddack (0-1) for nine runs in 5 1/3 innings. They finished with 15 hits.

Oriole starter Grayson Rodriguez (3-0) allowed two runs on four hits in six innings, walking three and striking out six.

Colton Cowser added two RBIs for the Orioles. It was their fourth consecutive game with three home runs for the first time since May 21st-24th, 2013.

Jackson Holliday was hitless in three at-bats, striking out twice and walking once. Holliday is 1-for-22 (.045).

Before the game, the Orioles placed right-handed starter Tyler Wells on the 15-day injured list with right elbow inflammation retroactive to April 13th. Wells, who is 0-2 with a 5.87 earned-run average in three starts, was scheduled to start on Wednesday. It’s possible the Oriole will promote left-hander Bruce Zimmerman from Triple-A Norfolk to take his place.

Catcher David Bañuelos, whose contract was selected from Triple-A Norfolk to replace Wells on the roster, flied out to right in the eighth in his first major league at-bat.
