Up next: Rays vs. Orioles




What's new: The biggest surprise might be that little has changed since the teams met 3½ weeks ago, with the Orioles still above .500 and playing Thursday night for a fourth straight series win. They've done it much like the Rays, with good pitching (including 17 saves by George Sherrill), sturdy defense and timely hitting, a credit to manager Dave Trembley.

Key stat: The Orioles have come from two or more runs back to win 11 times this season, most in the majors.

Connections: Orioles DH Aubrey Huff and RHP Steve Trachsel are ex-Rays; Rays RHP Al Reyes pitched for the Orioles in 1999-2000.

Series history: Rays lead 5-3 this season, Orioles lead 96-80 overall, it's 44-44 at the Trop.
