Rays looking for less complicated route vs. Orioles

The visiting Tampa Bay Rays battled through a lot to win the opener of their four-game series with the Baltimore Orioles on Thursday night. Tampa Bay hopes to have an easier time plus the same result when the teams meet again Friday in the second game.

The Rays fell behind 2-0 after just two batters in the bottom of the first inning, thanks mostly to two errors from shortstop Willy Adames on those first two plays.

Then came the 2-hour, 16-minute rain delay in the fifth that forced starter Ryan Yarbrough out. He came into this game with an 0.46 ERA in August and left after giving up one earned run (and two overall) in 4 1/3 innings. But Adames helped right the ship with a solo homer and a tie-breaking two-run single that led the Rays to a 5-2 victory in that opener.
