Up next for Tampa Bay Rays: Baltimore Orioles

. Up next

at Orioles


What's new: The Orioles (49-85) are still playing better under new manager Buck Showalter, going 17-12. A reason for the resurgence is the young rotation coming into its own. One of those is LHP Brian Matusz, who pitches Sunday. Luke Scott and Ty Wigginton have provided power, with 26 and 20 homers, respectively.

Key stat: Scott is hitting .395 with five homers and eight RBIs in 12 games against Tampa Bay this season.

Connections: Orioles INFs Wigginton and Julio Lugo are former Rays, as is LHP Mark Hendrickson. Rays RHP Lance Cormier is a former Oriole.

Series history: The Rays are 9-3 vs. the Orioles this season and lead the series 109-107. Tampa Bay is 49-58 at Camden Yards, 16-8 since 2008.

    ST. PETERSBURG — As pleased as the Rays were to win consecutive series against the contending Red Sox, Indians and Yankees and to get briefly back over .500, there was a lot of talk in the clubhouse before Monday's game against the Angels that it was time to do better.

    OF/DH Corey Dickerson missed out on a good birthday gift when AL player of the week honors went instead to Detroit's J.D. Martinez. Dickerson hit .385 with five homers, nine RBIs and nine runs; Martinez went .389-4-9-7 and got the nod.
