Making an emergency start, Austin Pruit held the Orioles off the scoreboard for three innings Tuesday in a 2-0 win.
The Rays evidently didn’t like the weather forecast early in the evening, so they scratched Erasmo Ramirez. It was a little rainy but playable as it turns out, but Tampa is surely fine with their decision after Pruitt yielded just one hit and one walk while whiffing three over his three scoreless frames. Pruitt will return to a long relief role.
Wade Miley walked six batters but managed to hold the Rays to two runs over seven frames in a loss Tuesday.
The left-hander’s control has been hit-or-miss this season to say the least, as he walked seven in his first outing and one combined in his next two before issuing six free passes in this one. Miley managed to hold the Rays relatively in check, though thanks to eight strikeouts and just four singles allowed. The southpaw will carry a 2.08 ERA into Boston next week against his former club.
Alex Colome walked a batter but hung on to convert his fifth save of the season Tuesday in Baltimore.
Colome issued a two-out walk to Chris Davis after getting a couple groundouts to start the frame, but he then set down Mark Trumbo swinging to close it out. The Rays' closer has been virtually untouchable this season, yielding just one unearned run over 10 frames.
Rickie Weeks singled, walked and scored a run Tuesday against the Orioles.
Weeks got the start against a left as he's been doing this season and batted fifth. He just missed out on a three-run home run in the first inning when he flied out to the warning track in center field. Weeks settled for a walk and a run in the fourth and a single in the eighth.
Huston Street (lat, shoulder) is scheduled to throw a bullpen session Wednesday.
It'll be his first mound workout since early March. Street is on the 60-day disabled list and just beginning a throwing program that will take at least five weeks. He's first eligible to join the Angels' bullpen June 1.
