Schoop's homer in 8th lifts Orioles past Rays 4-3

Tillman became the American League's second 13-game victor, backed by J.J. Hardy's two-run homer, in Baltimore's 2-1 victory over the Tampa Bay Rays on Saturday night.

"I left a cookie out there", Archer said. I didn't get the job done. Tampa Bay starter Chris Archer (4-13) leads the majors with 13 losses, and the Rays have just one win in his last 11 starts.

Three times already this season, Tillman has faced the Rays, and three times the Orioles have won - even a June 25 outing in which Tillman gave up 10 hits and six earned runs in five innings in an 8-6 win.

"We're not going to have a rested bullpen the way we did tonight for the next 74 games", he said. "I felt Archer was the best option there to get those two righties and I still feel that way". Jon enjoys contributing to a win and nothing individual."Mychal Givens (7-1) picked up the win after pitching a scoreless seventh". "Because I'm from Tampa, Florida, and we wanted the baby to be born in Tampa".

Brad Miller had a one-out double in the ninth off Zach Britton and went to third on a wild pitch. Tapa Bay was limited to four hits and three bases on balls with Steven Souza Jr. knocking in Logan Morrison with their only run in the 4th. Gallardo needed 58 pitches for the first two innings and allowed eight of the first 12 batters to reach base but came out of that down just 2-0. 194 with 10 RBIs in 124 at-bats, to Triple-A Durham, with Luke Maile taking his place as Curt Casali's backup. "It's like another opening day for me", said Kiermaier, who went 0 for 3 with a walk and a run scored....

And in one more move, the Rays signed reliever Kevin Jepsen, who was released by the Minnesota Twins, the same team that acquired Jepsen from the Rays at the trade deadline a year ago. Jepsen thinks he has corrected a mechanical flaw that had him "getting hit at an incredible pace".

Bundy has posted a 2-1 mark with a 3.08 ERA in 22 relief appearances this season as he continues to work his way back from multiple arm injuries - including Tommy John surgery in 2013. Team officials had floated only using him for 70 to 80 innings, but that stance seems to have softened in recent weeks and comments to a number of outlets both by manager Buck Showalter and general manager Dan Duquette.

Chris Tillman was the difference Saturday night - and it wouldn't be a stretch to say the right-hander has been the difference for the Baltimore Orioles in the AL East race so far this season.
