Gandha led the Orioles 7-6 in 11 innings

BALTIMORE ( Associated Press) — Rogued O’Door batted for his second game-winning run in three days as the Baltimore Orioles beat the Tampa Bay Rays 7-6 in 11 innings on Sunday.

The Orioles won two of three and a series win against Tampa Bay for the first time since July 31–August. On January 2, 2020, when Baltimore made a three-game sweep at home.

“It’s extremely satisfying, a total team effort,” said Orioles manager Brandon Hyde. “Pitching won us the game. I’m just proud of my effort.”

The Orioles put the Orioles 6–4 in the ninth before Austin Hayes managed a pinch-hit, two-out, two-run RBI single off Ryan Thompson, who had previously charged with a balk. The two runners were moved to the scoring position.

Then, a thunderstorm delayed the game for 51 minutes.

Baltimore’s Chris Owings had a successful bunt to move the 11th-place automatic runner to third from Duston Knight (0–1). Gandh followed up with a chopper that first baseman Ji-Man Choi mishandled and drove him into right field to score the winning run. The play was scored to a fielder’s choice and Gandh was awarded an RBI.

“I think (the smell) brings a lot of patience and just harsh baseball to this team,” Hayes said. “We’ve lost a lot of close games to these guys over the years. A lot of us young guys who are just starting to get some more time, we just keep fighting. We don’t want to lose those games anymore.” We want to come out on top.”

Sionel Pérez (2-0) won by throwing two innings without a score.

The Orioles dropped 16 runners on base, their most since June 13, 2012 against Boston, excluding 16. Baltimore improved to 4–0 in the extra innings.

This was the second time in three matches that Ray and the Orioles played extra innings. On Friday, Odor hit a two-run homer in the 13th inning to give Baltimore an 8-6 win, breaking a 15-game losing streak at Tampa Bay.

Randy Arozrena got another two hits with an RBI and is batting .412 (40-for-97) in 24 career games against the Orioles with 26 RBIs.

Tampa Bay’s Kevin Kirmeyer led the way for the second consecutive game and scored 2 for 6 with an RBI and two runs. Brett Phillips and Choi also took three hits for Ray.

Orioles top potential player Adley Ratschmann was in the lineup for the second game in a row and scored 1 for 4 with a hit by the pitch.

Ryan Mountcastle managed his fifth home run of the season and left with body cramps for Baltimore before moving to ninth, which has lost eight of 10.

It was not a perfect start for the Orioles.

The Ray took a 1-0 lead on a sharp grounder from Choi, who hit Orioles starter Spencer Watkins and was ruled out of the game after three batters injured his right arm. Joy Krehbiel entered for Baltimore and allowed a three-run home run to Isaac Paredes to extend the lead 4–0.

Watkins said of the injury, “It is too early to tell.” “We’ll see how it goes in the next day or so. We’ll reevaluate it from there.”

Rey continued to struggle defensively and a pair of errors on second baseman Vidal Bruijn and Arozren allowed the Orioles to draw within 6-4 in the seventh. Tampa Bay made five mistakes in the three-match series.

“We had many opportunities to win that game,” Rays manager Kevin Cash said. “We just haven’t finished it. The Orioles did.”
