BALTIMORE (AP) – Corey Patterson homered and had three RBIs, and

the Baltimore Orioles withstood four home runs by the Tampa Bay

Rays in an 8-7 victory Sunday.

Baltimore took two of three from the Rays, who remained 2½ games

behind the first-place New York Yankees in the AL East. It was only

the second time in 14 tries that the Orioles won the finale to take

a three-game series.

Tampa Bay scored all its runs on homers by Ben Zobrist, Evan

Longoria, B.J. Upton and Matt Joyce.
