    Orioles Hit 4 HRs to Beat Rays 8-6 for Doubleheader Sweep

    Matt Wieters hit two homers, and the Baltimore Orioles rallied from a four-run deficit to beat Tampa Bay 8-6 Saturday night for a doubleheader sweep that extended the Rays' losing streak to 10 games. Adam Jones and Chris Davis also homered for the AL East-leading Orioles, who trailed 4-0 in the third inning and 6-3 in the fifth. In the opener, Kevin Gausman allowed four hits over 7 2/3 innings to earn his first win of the season and help Baltimore to a 5-0 victory. Seeking his 10th straight win in the nightcap, Orioles starter Chris Tillman gave up six runs and 10 hits in five innings. But Baltimore's comeback kept the right-hander unbeaten in 13 starts since April 14.
