Mateo has 5 hits, Orioles pound Rays 10-3 for 8th win in 10

Jorge Mateo had a career-high five hits, Adley Rutschman and Cedric Mullins each homered off the Tropicana Field catwalk, and the Baltimore Orioles beat the Tampa Bay Rays 10-3 on Friday night.

Rougned Odor had four of the Orioles’ season-most 19 hits as Baltimore won for the eighth time in 10 games and moved into an AL wild-card spot, a half-game ahead of the Rays.

“Definitely one of our better offensive nights, the way we kept up those innings with the two-strike, two-out innings,” manager Brandon Hyde said. “(We) got a bunch of hits up and down the lineup.
