"Stevie's had some big hits for us,” Showalter said. “He's a professional baseball player. He's a strong young man who cares about doing things right. He's always been a pleasure to have around because of the way he carries himself. It means a lot for him to win and contribute."

Schoop, who was the hero of Wednesday's win with a game-winning two-run homer, hit a 1-2 pitch up the middle with two outs to score Adam Jones from third.

Price left the game with the bases loaded and no outs in the sixth, but right-hander Brad Boxberger entered the game and struck out the side to get Price off the hook.

The Rays took a quick lead four batters into the bottom of the first on Longoria's two-out RBI single that drove in Desmond Jennings.

Ryan Webb preserved the 3-1 lead in the sixth, coming in for Jimenez with runners at the corners and one out.

Rays shortstop Yunel Escobar then hit a groundball to third baseman Manny Machado, who threw home and caught lead runner Wil Myers in a rundown. Webb then induced a groundout to shortstop from pinch-hitter Ryan Hanigan to end the inning.

Webb found himself in a jam in the seventh with two on and one out, but he struck out Longoria swinging on an 81-mph slider.

Left-hander Brian Matusz then induced an inning-ending flyout from Jamey Loney, stranding two inherited runners. He has stranded 12 of 13 inherited runners this season.

With closer Tommy Hunter having worked the previous two days, Darren O'Day allowed back-to-back singles to open the ninth, but got Desmond Jennings to ground into a rally-killing double play, then ended the game with a groundout by Matt Joyce to Pearce at first.

In the three-game series, the Orioles bullpen allowed just one run in 10 innings.

“It's been great, especially tonight,” Jimenez said. “You saw what they did. All of the guys that came in the game, they stopped the runners from advancing they stopped the runners from scoring.”
