Orioles 10, Rays 7

Associated Press  |  Last updated June 09, 2013
J.J. Hardy, Adam Jones, Alexi Casilla and Nick Markakis had two RBIs apiece and the Baltimore Orioles hammered eight-game winner Matt Moore in beating the Tampa Bay Rays 10-7 on Sunday. Baltimore, held to one run and six hits in losing the first two games of the series, had 16 hits Sunday. Moore (8-2) allowed career highs of nine runs and 12 hits over five innings in his second consecutive loss. The left-hander was coming off a subpar start last Tuesday in which he gave up six runs over two-plus inning in a 10-1 loss at Detroit. Chris Tillman (6-2) gave up three runs and four hits in six innings. The Baltimore right-hander has won all five of his road decisions this year. Jim Johnson entered in the ninth with two on and two outs and gave up an RBI single to Jose Labaton that got Tampa Bay to 10-7 - they trailed 9-1 in the fourth. The right-hander then retired Kelly Johnson on an infield pop fly to get his 21st save. Johnson had a run-scoring hit in the sixth for the Rays, who lost for just the fourth time in the last 14 games. The Orioles took a 2-0 lead in the first on RBI doubles by Hardy and Jones. Manny Machado was hit by a pitch near the knee, but stayed in the game and scored from first on Hardy's hit. Casilla hit a sacrifice fly, Machado drove in a run with his 27th double this season, and Hardy had a run-scoring double as Baltimore went up 5-0 in the second. Machado has a hit in 24 of his last 26 road games. Tampa Bay got one run back in the bottom of the second when Evan Longoria doubled and later scored on Desmond Jennings' infield single. Jennings was caught attempting to steal second later in the inning when Machado made a nifty spinning tag. Casilla had an RBI single and Markakis hit a sacrifice fly during a three-run third to extended the Baltimore advantage to 8-1. Markakis also had a run-scoring double off Cesar Ramos in the seventh. Jones hit a solo homer to put Baltimore ahead 9-1 in the fourth. Ben Zobrist hit his first homer since May 1, a solo shot in the fourth off Tillman. Sam Fuld helped cut the Rays deficit to 10-6 during the eighth on his first homer since May 27, 2011, a two-run shot against Brian Matusz, who gave up three runs and five hits in two-thirds of an inning. Luke Scott also had an RBI single in the inning. NOTES: Baltimore 2B Brian Roberts (right hamstring) will continue his rehab program with the team. Roberts, who has been working out at the Orioles' complex in Sarasota, Fla., hopes to return before the All-Star break. ... Longoria was the DH, getting a day off from playing third on the artificial turf. ... An MRI on Baltimore RHP Steve Johnson showed a slight left oblique strain. He went on the disabled list June 5. ... Orioles pitching prospect Dylan Bundy (elbow and forearm soreness) is scheduled to resume throwing and make 25 throws at 60 feet on Monday.
