Down 5-0, the O’s scored three in the 8th vs. James Shields on Chad Moeller’s sac fly and a pinch hit, two-run homer from Ty Wigginton.
Shields got the win, pitching eight innings, as he improved to 11-12. David Hernandez took the loss, giving up five runs and seven hits in 4 1/3 innings.
Ben Zobrist hit a three-run homer and Carl Crawford a solo shot for Tampa, which is 10-5 over its last 15 games.
The O’s are 0-9 on this road trip that ends vs. the Rays on Thursday night.
