BALTIMORE -- The Tampa Bay Rays dont seem to mind being behind late in the game. In fact, theyre becoming quite adept at staging stirring rallies. Matt Joyce hit a go-ahead two-run double in a six-run ninth inning that lifted the Rays to a 10-6 victory over the Orioles on Saturday, ending Baltimores franchise-record streak of 109 straight wins when leading after seven innings. "Thats kind of been our identity from the beginning of the year," Rays third baseman Evan Longoria said. "Weve really done a good job throughout the game of continuing to tack on runs, and even when weve been down early in games, finding a way to put together good at-bats and score runs." Joyce also homered and finished 3 for 5 with five RBIs for the Rays, who posted a season-best third straight road victory, all of them come-from-behind wins. "We believe in each other, and then youre able to do those things," Rays manager Joe Maddon said. "If you stop believing, if you dont think it cant happen, then it never will. If you think it can happen, then it shall. And thats pretty much what this groups been about." But this one came against a closer that had been virtually unbeatable until this week and a team thats been hard to overcome when taking a lead to the eighth. "Their track record after seven innings has spoken for itself," Longoria said. "Theyve been really good late in the game. And Jim Johnson has been as good as they come. To be able to get to him and then tack a couple more on and be able to win a game like that, especially here in this hostile environment, is really big." Trailing 6-4, Kelly Johnson hit a one-out homer off the Orioles Jim Johnson (1-4), whose club-record streak of 35 straight saves ended Tuesday. Johnson then loaded the bases on two walks and a hit before Joyce hit a two-run double to the right-centre gap for a 7-6 lead. Ben Zobrist followed with a two-run double off Darren ODay, who later issued a bases-loaded walk to Luke Scott. After two straight blown saves, Johnson wasnt questioning himself or talking about a slump. In fact, he knew exactly what went wrong and vowed to fix it. "Not getting strike one is a good place to start," Johnson said. "Pitching behind, just not throwing quality pitches. It kind of snowballed back and didnt obviously make the pitch I needed to. Its just one of those days where it just didnt work." Adam Jones and Chris Davis homered for the Orioles, who have lost a season-high four straight. "Were not clicking great right now, but unfortunately you go through little spells in a season like we play," Baltimore left fielder Nate McLouth said. "Like I said, theres no sense of sitting here and beating yourselves up about it. Wipe it clean and try to get it done tomorrow." Alex Torres (1-0) worked four hitless innings for the victory. The Orioles sent 10 men to the plate in the first inning and took a 4-0 lead against Roberto Hernandez. McLouth led off with a single, moved to second on a groundout and scored when Nick Markakis doubled over the head of Joyce. Jones then ripped a line drive homer to left off an 0-2 pitch and Davis followed with a shot to left-centre. Jair Jurrjens, whose contract was purchased before the game from Triple-A Norfolk, retired the first seven hitters he faced before allowing successive doubles to Jose Molina and Yunel Escobar. Molinas ball bounced off the top of the wall in centre, prompting Maddon to seek a video review, which upheld the original call. Later in the third, Joyce hit a two-run homer onto the flag court in right field, his seventh of the season, cutting the deficit to 4-3. Hernandez departed after hitting Davis with a pitch to lead off the bottom of the third. The right-hander allowed five runs and eight hits in two-plus innings, with nine of the 14 batters he faced reaching base. Reliever Cesar Ramos struck out Matt Wieters swinging, but gave up a run-scoring double to J.J. Hardy for a 5-3 Orioles lead. In the fourth, McLouth led off with a single, stole second, moved to third on Markakis single to centre and scored on Jones broken-bat fielders choice grounder. The Rays got within 6-4 in the fifth, but lost Molina in the process. Molina pulled up with a tight left hamstring after a leadoff double and was replaced by Jose Lobaton, who scored on Joyces two-out double. Jurrjens gave up four runs and six hits -- all for extra bases -- over five innings. NOTES: After the game, the Orioles optioned 2B Ryan Flaherty to Norfolk.
