Ravens blow lead but pick OT winner

Related News/Archive

HOUSTON — Josh Wilson intercepted Matt Schaub's pass and returned it 12 yards for a touchdown in overtime, lifting the Ravens to a win over the Texans.

The Ravens stayed a game behind Pittsburgh in the AFC North despite squandering a 28-7 lead in the second half.

Schaub threw a 5-yard touchdown to Andre Johnson and a 2-point conversion to Jacoby Jones with 21 seconds left in regulation to cap the unlikely rally.

Baltimore lost fourth-quarter leads in each of its four losses and punted after its only offensive series of overtime. Houston started from its 12, and Schaub was trying to connect with Jones on second down when Wilson picked it off and ran into the end zone.

The Texans trailed 28-13 entering the fourth quarter before Jones capped a 99-yard drive with a 7-yard touchdown reception with 6 minutes remaining.

The Ravens punted after their drive stalled at the Houston 44 following an incomplete pass on third and 2 with about three minutes left to give the Texans the ball.

Johnson managed to keep his toes inbounds on a 5-yard touchdown that made it 28-26, and Jones grabbed the 2-point conversion to tie it.

David Reed had a 103-yard kickoff return to open the second half to give the Ravens a 28-7 lead.

  3. Rays journal: Jumbo Diaz falters after getting within a strike of ending rally

    ST. PETERSBURG — Saturday's game got away starting with a leadoff walk in the seventh inning by Rays LHP Jose Alvarado, who was brought in exclusively to face Baltimore's lefty-swinging Seth Smith.

    Rays reliever Jumbo Diaz wipes his face as he walks off the mound after the Orioles score four during the seventh inning to give them a 7-3 lead. Diaz was one strike away from working out of the jam before he allowed a two-run double and a two-run homer on back-to-back pitches.
  4. Rookie Jake Faria dissatisfied with performance in Rays' loss to Orioles

    ST. PETERSBURG — The rookie pitcher walked to his locker Saturday after tossing the fourth quality start in as many tries to begin his career. He held the potent Orioles bats to three runs and for six innings gave his team a chance to win.

    It was refreshing to see RHP Jacob Faria take the blame after the loss even though he gave the Rays a chance to win. Too often young pitchers are encouraged by what they did and not necessarily the outcome, but Faria, making just his fourth big-league start, came to the Trop to win, didn't, and pointed the finger …
