Manny Machado blooped an RBI single barely ahead of left fielder Matt Joyce's desperate drive with two outs in the 14th inning and the Baltimore Orioles beat Tampa Bay 3-2 Thursday, completing a three-game sweep and remaining atop the AL East.
"I felt like we've done it and been here before," said Desmond Jennings, who hit a two-run double. "The road we took to get here was pretty tough going to New York, Toronto, playing a game in Texas."
"Go out and play our game," Jennings said. "It's going to be tough anytime you play Boston."
