Orioles clobber Rays 7-1

BALTIMORE (AP)—Wei-Yin Chen took a four-hitter into the seventh inning and Baltimore got its offence back on track against Chris Archer in a victory over Tampa Bay yesterday.
Matt Wieters and J.J. Hardy each had three hits, scored twice and drove in a run for the Orioles, who were coming off a three-game series against Toronto in which they scored only five runs in 30 innings.

In this one, Baltimore built a 6-0 lead over the first three innings and coasted to the finish. The Orioles had 13 hits, including five doubles.
Elsewhere in the American League, the Athletics nipped the Angels 3-2, while the Mariners skewered the Rangers 7-1.
