Instant Analysis on the Orioles' 7-4 win over the Rays
Eduardo A. Encina, reporter: The Orioles set the tone early with patient at-bats – making reigning Cy Young Award winner David Price uncomfortable on the mound – before relying on those big middle-of-the-order bats. The biggest at-bat of the game was Matt Wieters’ 13-pitch walk against Price in the third inning. The Orioles didn’t benefit from it on the scoreboard, but it put a chink in Price’s armor and forced the Rays into their bullpen earlier than they wanted. After opening the game 1-for-9 with runners in scoring position, the Orioles rallied in the later innings from behind. Sound familiar?
