ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — Close games have become commonplace for the Tampa Bay Rays.
Jake Bauers drove in two of his three runs with a go-ahead two-run single in the seventh inning and the Rays beat the Baltimore Orioles 5-4 Thursday night.
Bauers’ decisive hit off Cody Carroll (0-1) came in the Rays’ franchise-record tying sixth consecutive one-run game. Tampa Bay has played 49 (22-27) one-run games overall, tops in the majors.
“Hopefully we’re looking at that as a positive,” Rays manager Kevin Cash said. “We’ve got to find ways to separate some games. But, if you’re in a lot of one-run games, that means in you’re in a lot of baseball games.”
The Orioles (35-80) open a four-game series Friday night against Boston.
