    Odor homers in 13th, Orioles finally beat Rays, 8-6

    Rougned Odor hit a two-run homer in the 13th inning and Baltimore Orioles snapped a 15-game losing streak to the Tampa Bay Rays with an 8-6 victory on Friday night. The Orioles' last win over Tampa Bay was on July 19 at Tropicana Field, and Baltimore hadn't beaten the Rays at home since Sept. 20, 2020. The Rays appeared to take the lead in the 13th against Nick Vespi (1-0) on a single by Kevin Kiermaier, but Wander Franco was ruled out at the plate on a throw by left fielder Austin Hays after a review.

    Anthony Santander almost gave up right-handed hitting. After a walk-off homer, he and the Orioles are glad he didn't.

    Anthony Santander had a hunch. With so few left-handed pitchers to face in 2016, when Santander played in High-A in Cleveland’s organization, the few at-bats the switch hitter took from his natural right-handed side of the plate began to feel more unnatural. He swing timing was off, his movements felt clunky and he felt uncomfortable at the plate.
