Rays left fielder Sam Fuld saved a run in the fourth with an exceptional diving catch on a sinking liner by Robert Andino with two outs and a runner on second. In the eighth, Fuld robbed Matt Wieters of at least extra bases with a leaping catch at the wall.

Down 1-0, the Orioles loaded the bases with one out in the second before Hellickson struck out Andino and retired Brian Roberts on a popup.

“That bases-loaded jam, to Andino, that was one of the only at-bats I felt real confident in my fastball,” Hellickson said. “Other than that, I had to fight through everything.”

In the Tampa Bay third, John Jaso walked and took third on a double by Zobrist before Longoria drove a 1-1 pitch deep into the left-field seats for a 4-0 lead.

Upton hit his fifth homer in the fifth, and Johnny Damon’s RBI double in the sixth made it 8-0.

NOTES: Tampa Bay’s Reid Brignac has gone a franchise-record 33 straight games without an extra-base hit. … Zobrist has hit in 13 straight games. … Orioles LHP Brian Matusz (strained ribcage muscle) pitched two innings in extended spring training in Florida. Matusz, who has been on the DL all season, could be activated on May 21 or May 26, manager Buck Showalter said.
