The Rays were paced by starter Matt Moore who went six strong innings, allowing two runs (one earned) on seven hits while striking out four.
The Orioles struck first when Matt Wieters homered in the top of the second. The Rays took the game up in the fourth on a Matt Joyce sac fly and an error by Andruw Jones. A Mark Reynolds single in the top of the fifth put the Orioles back up 2-1, however, the Rays again had a counter punch, with B.J. Upton giving the Rays the lead on a two-run double to make the score 4-2.
The Orioles fell apart in the sixth, as two erros led to a four run inning for the Rays that put the game out of reach. Mark Reynolds would hit a home run for the O's in the eighth and Wieters would add an RBI single in the ninth, but it was not enough.
