Photos: Orioles Win Wild One Against Rays in 13; Michelle Obama Throws Out First Pitch

On Tuesday night, the Orioles – in perhaps their craziest game played in a long time – outlasted the Tampa Bay Rays, 11-10, in 13 innings. The victory for Baltimore was the 30th of the season and perhaps the most thrilling of the season.

Baltimore’s game on Tuesday night was filled with errors, poor pitching and just a glut of mistakes; however, the offense exploded early on, plus got the big hits at the right time. The game at times looked as if it was going to get out of hand, but the Orioles were lucky not to have been taken further advantage of by the Rays.

You’ve got to give the Rays credit – they hung in there, and they showed on Tuesday night why they are contenders in the American League.

Koji Uehara got the win in relief, and Julio Lugo’s walk-off single to right off reliever Lance Cormier that plated Cesar Izturis made the difference.

The Orioles looked like they were headed to their 64th loss of the season, but they came back in the ninth off a Miguel Tejada two-run single and tied the game at nine. After falling behind – again – they would again tie the game at ten in the 12th off a Scott Moore sacrifice fly.

Baltimore got back-to-back-to-back from homers from Luke Scott, Ty Wigginton and Adam Jones in the second inning, plus, Scott added another homer to put them up 4-1.

However, despite the Orioles sudden surge of offense via the long ball, the Rays kept chipping at the lead and overtook them in the 6th with a four-run inning off starter Jake Arrieta and reliever Jason Berken.
