Rays Report

Tampa Bay Rays: Brandon Guyer replaying first home run moment; Rays continue to roll on the road

Rays at Orioles

When/where: 1:35 p.m.; Camden Yards, Baltimore

TV/radio: Sun Sports; 620-AM, 680-AM (Spanish)

Probable starting pitchers:

RAYS: RH Wade Davis (3-2, 2.77)

ORIOLES: RH Brad Bergesen (0-3, 4.76)

Watch for …

Lovin' life at Camden: Davis is off to a great start and should feel comfortable at Camden Yards, where he is 2-0 with a 2.05 ERA in three starts. He had his fifth straight quality start Tuesday, limiting the Blue Jays to two runs in seven innings.

Rays hater: Bergesen would probably rather see any team besides the Rays. He is 0-4 vs. Tampa Bay with a 9.00 ERA and 15 strikeouts. In five starts this season, Bergesen has left with the lead once, in his last outing against Kansas City.

Rolling replay of the day

OF Brandon Guyer said he watched the highlight about 20 times of his two-run homer in his first major-league at-bat Friday night. His biggest thrill was seeing the reaction of family and friends at Camden Yards — minus his wife, Lindsay Murphy, who listened on the radio in the parking lot. "I was watching the highlights when we got back to the hotel and I was rounding second when they panned to all the friends and family, and it cracked me up just seeing all the different expressions," Guyer said. "That was awesome."

Stat of the day

With their victory over the Orioles, the Rays are 10-4 on the road, tops in the American League. The Rays also tied a club single-season record with their seventh straight win on the road (June 2004) and are one shy of the overall team best set in 2009-10.
