Rivers has yards, Ravens get win

BALTIMORE — The Ravens finally found a way to win a close game. For San Diego, the wait continues.

Justin Tucker kicked a 39-yard field goal on the final play, and Baltimore overcame another record day by Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers.

Joe Flacco threw for 319 yards and ran for a score to help Baltimore snap a three-game skid and hand the Chargers their fourth straight defeat. Tucker's fifth field goal came three plays after a third-down pass interference call against Steve Williams moved the ball 21 yards to the San Diego 22.

Rivers went 28 for 37 for 301 yards, his franchise-record fifth consecutive 300-yard game. Two of his TD passes went to Malcom Floyd, including a 70-yarder. But for the third time this season, San Diego lost on the final play.

"It's been tough losing this way," Rivers said. "Whatever the answer to the problem is, we haven't found the answer."

    INF Trevor Plouffe didn't do much with the opportunity the Rays gave him, and time ran out Tuesday when he was designated for assignment after the game.

    Plouffe hit just .178, with one homer and two RBIs, in 31 games for the Rays, his primary playing time from starting at first or third against lefties.

  3. Rays journal: Offense shows signs of waking up in win over Blue Jays (w/video)

    The Heater

    ST. PETERSBURG — The drought was so severe that it's still probably too soon to say the Rays are out of it, but scoring a half-dozen runs in Tuesday's 6-5 win over the Blue Jays was another promising sign.

    C Wilson Ramos, coming off right knee surgery, often takes it easy on the bases, though it's not always a good look. But he hustled when he needed to Tuesday and got the Rays a run by beating out a two-out infield single, finishing with three more hits.

  5. Rays are full of ideas they'd like to share when commissioner visits

    The Heater

    ST. PETERSBURG — Commissioner Rob Manfred is coming to the Trop today. Hmm. Rays principal owner Stuart Sternberg will be there to greet him. Hmmmm. And they have a scheduled joint media session. Hmmmmmmmmm.

    Commissioner Rob Manfred isn’t expected to say anything definitive about the Rays’ stadium situation when he visits the team today.
