American League Game Summary - Tampa Bay at Baltimore



(Wednesday, April 17th)

Final Score: Tampa Bay 6, Baltimore 2

Baltimore, MD (Sports Network) - James Loney finished 3-for-3 with three RBI and one run scored to lead the Tampa Bay Rays to a 6-2 victory over the Baltimore Orioles in the middle test of a three-game set Wednesday at Camden Yards.

Kelly Johnson and Shelley Duncan each smacked solo homers, while Yunel Escobar added an RBI single to help the Rays snap a four-game skid.

Matt Moore (3-0) struck out seven and limited the O's to two runs on five hits and three walks over 6 2/3 frames to earn the victory.

Adam Jones stroked a two-run homer to account for Baltimore's offense, while starter Chris Tillman (0-1) was charged with four runs allowed on six hits and two walks over five frames for the Orioles, who took the opener of the series, 5-4, on Tuesday.

"It's disappointing," Tillman said of his outing "I think I've got some things to work on right now. I think the biggest thing is getting strike one."

Johnson gave the Rays a jolt in the first, when he crushed a one-out homer into the bleachers in right-center field.

"I think it all starts with Kelly Johnson in the first inning," Duncan said of the Rays' offense coming to life. "You come out there and you do that, it allows everyone to relax a lot. I think that's what really set the tone."

After the O's stranded runners on the corners in the bottom half, Duncan doubled the lead when he launched a slider into the first row in left-center field with one out in the second.

Baltimore finally broke through in third, when Manny Machado reached on a fielder's choice before Jones followed with a two-out drive into left-center field that hit the top of the fence and bounced back into play.

Jones coasted into second with a double, but the umpires got together and reviewed the play, which was eventually ruled a home run that brought the O's even at 2-2.

Tampa Bay quickly answered in the top of the fourth. Evan Longoria launched a leadoff double off the right-field wall before Duncan smacked a one-out single and moved to second on the throw to the plate to put two runners in scoring position.

Loney then scorched a sinking line drive to center that dropped just in front of Jones to score Longoria and Duncan and make it 4-2.

Tampa Bay tacked on an insurance run in the sixth on Escobar's RBI single that plated Loney, who added an RBI single in the eighth to push the lead to 6-2.

Baltimore, meanwhile, failed to move a runner into scoring position after Jones' blast in the third.
