Upton, Rays sweep Orioles

Wade Davis (4-2) earned the win in five innings of work in which he allowed
three runs on four hits and five walks while fanning three to give the Rays
their fourth consecutive victory.

Brad Bergesen (0-4) went 4 2/3 innings, allowing five runs on nine hits and
two walks to hand Baltimore its fourth straight defeat.

Johnny Damon led off the fourth with a double and came home on Evan Longoria’s
single. Matt Joyce followed with a double to put runners on second and third
and Upton then hit a two-run single to give the Rays a 3-0 lead.

The Orioles answered back in the bottom of the fourth with two runs to make it
a one-run game. Luke Scott led off with a double and Adam Jones was hit by a
pitch before Matt Wieters’ double plated Scott and Jones.

Tampa Bay added two more runs in the fifth after Upton hit a two-run single
that forced Bergesen from the game.

Derek Lee led off Baltimore’s half of the fifth with a home run to make the
score 5-3.

Kyle Farnsworth entered in the eighth inning with two down and struck out
Mark Reynolds to end the inning. He stayed in for the ninth and allowed a lead
off double to pinch-hitter Felix Pie, and then hit Nick Markakis with a pitch
two batters later to put the tying run on first. Lee then grounded into a
double play to end the game and give Farnsworth his seventh save of the year.
