Rays beat Orioles 6-4 in 10 innings to end 4-game skid

BALTIMORE (AP) - Randy Arozarena hit a two-run double off All-Star reliever Jorge Lopez in the 10th inning, and the Tampa Bay Rays recovered from another late lapse to beat the Baltimore Orioles 6-4 Wednesday night and end a four-game losing streak.

Baltimore's Jorge Mateo sent the game into extra innings with a one-out solo shot in the ninth off Colin Poche (3-1). One night earlier, Poche entered in the eighth inning with a one-run lead and yielded a two-run homer.

This time, however, Tampa Bay rebounded from his mistake.

An infield hit and a walk loaded the bases for Arozarena, who ripped a pitch from Lopez (4-6) to the base of the right-field wall.

Pete Fairbanks got three straight outs in the bottom half for his first save.

Ji-Man Choi and Luke Raley homered for the Rays, who totaled just nine runs during their four-game skid. Tampa Bay is 43-11 when scoring at least four runs and 10-34 when held to three runs or fewer.

Baltimore fell to 14-7 in July and missed a chance to move two games over .500 this late in the season for the first time since 2017.

Orioles starter Tyler Wells got one out in the fifth inning before leaving with lower back discomfort. The right-hander allowed four runs and six hits in losing his third straight start.

  • Wells leads Baltimore in wins, ranks second in innings pitched and is tied for the team lead with 20 starts.

    Rays right-hander Drew Rasmussen started on his 27th birthday and had little to celebrate. He hit two batters, walked one, let in a run with a wild pitch and was pulled with two outs in the fifth inning, making him ineligible to get the win with Tampa Bay up 4-3.


    Jackson Holliday, the No. 1 overall pick in the 2022 amateur draft, took batting practice with the Orioles before the game after signing a contract with an $8.19 million signing bonus and meeting with the Baltimore media.

    His professional career will begin this week in Florida, where he will work out at the team's training complex in Sarasota.

    Holliday, an 18-year-old shortstop, is the son of former All-Star outfielder Matt Holliday.


    Rays: RHP Matt Wisler (neck strain) went on the 15-day IL, retroactive to July 24, and the team recalled RHP Ralph Garza Jr. from Triple-A Durham. ... RHP JT Chargois (left oblique tightness) will begin a rehab stint with Durham on Friday and RHP Nick Anderson (elbow surgery) will pitch for Durham on Saturday, manager Kevin Cash said. ... OF Manuel Margot (right patellar tendon strain) is running comfortably with the goal of coming off the 60-day IL on Aug. 20.

    Orioles: LHP John Means won't pitch again this year after undergoing Tommy John surgery in late April, but he appears on track for a successful return in 2022. "He's on schedule and feels great," manager Brandon Hyde said. "It's great to see him keep his head up throughout this."


    The Rays did not announce their starting pitcher for the series finale on Thursday afternoon. Baltimore will go with Jordan Lyles (6-8, 4.79 ERA), who's 0-2 with a 12.91 ERA in two starts against Tampa Bay this season.
