Hanser Alberto homered against his former team to help the Royals win in their first visit to Camden Yards since August 2019.
Salvador Perez tied it at 2 with a bloop single in the eighth for the Royals.
Benintendi provided the lead with an RBI hit off Cole Sulser.
Anthony Santander led off the Orioles ninth with a high fly that Benintendi caught, plucking the ball just above the fence.
