BALTIMORE (AP) Matt Joyce hit a go-ahead two-run double in a six-run ninth-inning rally, lifting the Tampa Bay Rays to a 10-6 victory over the Orioles on Saturday, ending Baltimore's franchise-record streak of 109 straight wins when leading after seven innings. Joyce also homered and finished 3 for 5 with five RBIs. It was the third straight road victory for the Rays, all of them come-from-behind wins. Trailing 6-4, Kelly Johnson hit a one-out homer off Orioles closer Jim Johnson (1-4), whose club-record streak of 35 straight saves ended Tuesday. Johnson then loaded the bases on two walks and a hit before Joyce hit a two-run double to the right-center gap for a 7-6 lead. Ben Zobrist followed with a two-run double off Darren O'Day, who later issued a bases-loaded walk to Luke Scott. Adam Jones and Chris Davis homered for the Orioles, who have lost four straight. Alex Torres (1-0) worked four hitless innings for the victory. The Orioles sent 10 men to the plate in the first inning and took a 4-0 lead against Roberto Hernandez. Nate McLouth led off with a single, moved to second on a groundout and scored when Nick Markakis doubled over the head of Joyce. Jones then ripped a line drive homer to left off an 0-2 pitch and Davis followed with a shot to left-center. Jair Jurrjens, whose contract was purchased before the game from Triple-A Norfolk, retired the first seven hitters he faced before allowing successive doubles to Jose Molina and Yunel Escobar. Molina's ball bounced off the top of the wall in center, prompting Rays manager Joe Maddon to seek a video review, which upheld the original call. Later in the third, Joyce hit a two-run homer onto the flag court in right field, his seventh of the season, cutting the deficit to 4-3. Hernandez departed after hitting Davis with a pitch to lead off the bottom of the third. The right-hander allowed five runs and eight hits in two-plus innings, with nine of the 14 batters he faced reaching base. Reliever Cesar Ramos struck out Matt Wieters swinging, but gave up a run-scoring double to J.J. Hardy for a 5-3 Orioles lead. In the fourth, McLouth led off with a single, stole second, moved to third on Markakis' single to center and scored on Jones' broken-bat fielder's choice grounder. The Rays got within 6-4 in the fifth, but lost Molina in the process. Molina pulled up with a tight left hamstring after a leadoff double and was replaced by Jose Lobaton, who scored on Joyce's two-out double. Jurrjens gave up four runs and six hits all for extra bases over five innings.
