Rays 2, Orioles 0
Carlos Pena is congratulated after his sacrifice fly gave the Rays an insurance run. (AP)
Matt Garza beat Baltimore for the fifth time in six starts, tossing 7 1/3 innings in a series-opening shutout. He got just enough support from the Rays, on Carl Crawford's RBI single and Carlos Pena's sac fly, and Trever Miller escaped a jam in the eighth, while Troy Percival finished the ninth.
