BALTIMORE — Down 4-2 with a man on third and the Rays down to their last out, veteran INF/OF Kelly Johnson knew enough to only break for second if he knew he could make it.He was confident — enough to "bet the house," he said — the situation was ideal: Orioles RHP Tommy Hunter was slow to the plate, Jose Lobaton was likely to swinging and Johnson got a great jump.And he still was thrown out by C Ma tt Wieters to end the game."I would always take me to be safe on a guy like that (Hunter)," Johnson said. "Unfortunately, it looks worse than what I thought the odds would be."Johnson, who was 7 of 10 in steals, was running on his own. Manager Joe Maddon said he was okay with the decision."It's really not a bad play; they made a good play," Maddon said. "For us to get a couple more hits right there at the bottom part of the order it's going to be very difficult, so I'm not opposed to him trying to get in scoring position right there."Would he have preferred Johnson not run? "I would have preferred he be safe," Maddon said. MOORE OPTIMISTIC: LHP Matt Moore said his bullpen session went great, throwing a more-than-planned 69 pitches on a steamy afternoon with no hints of any trouble in his elbow."It went really well," he said. "This is the best bullpen by far we've thrown in this process, so we're very encouraged by it."Moore, who last pitched July 28, still has a few hurdles until he rejoins the rotation potentially by the end of next week, starting with a simulated game Saturday. But his confidence seemed obviously increased after Wednesday's extended session, which included several changeups, the pitch on which he had felt the most discomfort."It's a relief," he said. "It's like taking a test in the morning and getting the results at the same time. (Wednesday) was kind of a test for us to see where we were at after that many pitches."The team will decide the next step after Saturday, but Maddon said Moore won't be ready yet for a game. PITCHING IN: The Rays announced after the game that RHP Chris Archer will start Friday but held off on naming the rest of their weekend rotation. It appears, however, that it will be LHP Da vid Price on Saturday and RHP Alex Cobb on Sunday, with RHP Je remy Hellickson working the Monday makeup game in Kansas City.RHP Roberto Hernandez was in the bullpen Wednesday, and the Rays will have to decide whether to start him or a callup Tuesday.Maddon said the holdup was due in part to the Rays looking at several scenarios with the starters through the end of the season. Also, not knowing the exact date Moore will be ready could be a complicating factor. HELPING HAND: The Rays remain active in their efforts to add depth before September, and possibly by the weekend, likely a right-handed bat to share DH duties. Former Ray Delmon Young , with whom there has been mutual interest, remains a possibility, though he has received interest from other teams. At the top end of the scale of other potential candidates would be the White Sox's Paul Konerko . MISCELLANY: Rookie Wil Myers was the DH for the fourth time in the past seven games. … OF Jason Bourgeois hit his first homer since July 31, 2011, and third of his career. … SS Yunel Escobar 's hitting streak ended at nine games. … Maddon said he missed Chris Davis ' homer that landed on Eutaw Street behind the rightfield patio: "I had come up here (to the clubhouse) to go to the men's room, so I just heard it." … Triple-A Durham, which leads all of pro baseball with 82 wins, clinched its sixth International League South Division title in seven years with a 9-2 win over Charlotte.
