Shortstop J.J. Hardy makes Tampa Bay Rays pay in Orioles' 5-4 win Thursday

Despite his obvious power and previous success, Orioles infielder Chris Davis has been struggling so much this season that it has become business as usual when pitchers challenge him. So, in the Orioles' 5-4 victory over the Tampa Bay Rays on Thursday, it was somewhat surprising that Tampa Bay manager Joe Maddon chose to have rookie right-hander Kirby Yates (0-2) intentionally...
