BALTIMORE -- The Baltimore Orioles have been depending on home runs all season long, so it came as no surprise that the long ball decided a big game against the Tampa Bay Rays. Ryan Quigley Jersey .What made Sundays victory unusual was the final score: 2-1, Orioles.Mark Trumbo hit his major league-leading 43rd homer to break an eighth-inning tie and provide Baltimore with a much-needed win.Manny Machado also connected for the Orioles, who lead the majors with 236 home runs. Baltimore salvaged a split of the four-game series against the last-place Rays and improved to 16-47 when scoring three runs or fewer.We needed two runs to win today because we pitched real well, manager Buck Showalter said, and we got them.Baltimore came in trailing first-place Boston by three games in the AL East and tied with Toronto for the two AL wild cards. The Red Sox and Orioles begin a four-game series at Camden Yards on Monday night.I know our guys will embrace the competition and the opportunity that theyve earned to (win) for our city late in the year, Showalter said.After missing two straight games with back spasms, Trumbo returned with a flourish. With one out in the eighth, the Orioles cleanup hitter drove the first pitch from Ryan Garton (1-1) far over the center-field wall, his career-high 101st RBI of the season.This time of year, someones got to step up at some point in the game, Trumbo said. It was a well-played game, but we just needed to get that hit there at the end. So it was nice.Brad Brach (10-3) pitched the eighth and Zach Britton got three outs for his 45th save in 45 tries. After Tampa Bay got a runner to second with one out against Britton, the lefty struck out pinch-hitter Logan Forsythe and retired Alexei Ramirez on a grounder to shortstop.Corey Dickerson homered for the Rays, extending the teams streak of games with a long ball to 14. The drive put Tampa Bay ahead 1-0 in the fifth inning.Despite giving up only one run and five hits over six innings, Rays starter Jake Odorizzi ended up with his major league-leading 16th no-decision of the season. The right-hander is 6-1 since July 10.Cant be happier with the way Jake battled today, manager Kevin Cash said. It was quiet offensively, for whatever reason.Orioles starter Wade Miley allowed one single over four shutout innings, then left with a mild muscle strain in his upper back after warming up in the fifth.I felt something grab in my shoulder blade area, Miley said. It kind of stayed there and didnt go away. In between innings, it kind of got a little worse.That put an end to perhaps his best performance since joining Baltimore on July 31. The left-hander was 1-5 with an 8.41 ERA in eight starts as an Oriole.Miley was replaced by Darren ODay, who was activated from the disabled list before the game. The sidearmers first pitch since Aug. 11 was hit by Dickerson into the left-field seats.Tampa Bay loaded the bases with one out in the sixth against Donnie Hart before Dickerson hit into a double play.Machado led off the bottom half with his career-high 36th home run and fourth in 32 career at-bats against Odorizzi.ITS A STEALRays CF Kevin Kiermaier stole his 18th consecutive base in the fourth inning. Hes 20 of 22. The Orioles have 17 steals as a team, on 28 attempts.TRAINERS ROOMRays: 1B Nick Franklin (hamstring) hasnt played since Thursday and is still pretty sore, according to Cash. ... C Bobby Wilson left the team because of a death in the family.Orioles: To make room for ODay (shoulder), 1B Steve Pearce (forearm) was moved to the 60-day DL, ending his season. Baltimore also purchased the contract of INF Trey Mancini from Triple-A Norfolk.UP NEXTRays: Tampa Bay is off Monday. Unbeaten in his last 10 starts, LHP Drew Smyly (7-11, 4.98 ERA) starts Tuesday night at home against the Yankees.Orioles: Dylan Bundy (9-5, 3.88) faces Bostons Rick Porcello (20-4, 3.12) on Monday night. Trevor Siemian Jersey . But when it comes to determining if Raymond will find a place on the Leafs roster when training camp concludes in a week, well, that decision will ultimately fall to the head coach. Everson Griffen Jersey . Three came down to the fourth quarter while quarterbacks continued to shine in all four games; so important to the overall quality of the game. http:///...Waynes-Draft-Jersey/ . "Were just throwing s--- at the wall hoping something sticks," said Tortorella about the possible line combinations for Fridays game against Columbus. The Canucks have lost five straight games and six of their last seven, leaving them in a logjam in the Pacific Division, currently sitting fifth - good for ninth in the Western Conference. RIO DE JANEIRO -- One of the South Korean archers had a perfect response for a nearly flawless show.We shoot always like this, Lee Seungyun said through a translator. Its Korea.Even for the archery powerhouse, though, this was some kind of shooting display. The South Koreans captured gold by placing 15 of its 18 arrows in the top scoring ring to knock off the Americans, 6-0, in the mens team final Saturday at the Rio de Janeiro Olympics.The U.S. took home silver for a second straight Olympics, while Australia beat China in the bronze-medal match.Still, the buzz was all about the clinic put on by Kim Woojin, Ku Bonchan and Lee. It was so impressive that American archer Jake Kaminski went over to the South Korean squad after the match and simply bowed.Nothing else needed to be said as South Korea earned its fifth Olympic title in the mens team event.We just got outclassed, said Kaminski, whose team beat Indonesia and China to reach the final. A match like that has never been shot before. That wouldve been a world record if world records still existed in this format. We shot well and just got beat.Kim picked up right where he left off a day after setting a recurve world record in qualifying. He scored a 10 on five of his six shots in the final. Ku was even more precise -- 6 for 6.I didnt know that I had a perfect score, said Ku, whose squad knocked off the Netherlands and Australia to make the final. During the match, I only focus on each individual shot. I was very happy.That pep talk from Kim really did the trick. Before the match -- and during it, too -- Kim called his team together for some simple advice: Trust, be confident and shoot straight.It hit the mark.I dont know why or how they can make all these 10s, Mauro Nespoli said earlier in the day after his defending Olympicc champion Italian squad was eliminated by China in the quarterfinals. Dalvin Cook Jersey. When I find the answer, maybe Ill go up to them.In this team format, the three archers on a squad each shoot one arrow, followed by the next team. They each do that again to complete whats called a set. The winner of the set receives two points and the first one to five wins the match.In the opening set, the South Korean contingent scored a 10 on all six of their shots. They nearly did the same in the third and closing set as well.They shot amazing, Ellison said. I mean, that was once again a world-record performance they just put on. Youre not going to see three-set scoring that high probably ever again.Kaminski and Ellison were on the American squad that lost the gold to Italy four years ago in London. This time, they didnt feel like they lost it. Those two, along with Zach Garrett, scored a 10 on 10 of their 18 arrows.Its a little different walking off the field, knowing we just won silver compared to you just lost gold, Ellison explained. Its not like any of them really messed up.The Americans were hoping for a little more wind. Maybe that wouldve thrown off the South Koreans. But a breeze hardly even moved the wind flag at the Sambadrome as a group of robust South Korean fans rooted on their nation.Its hard to beat Korea on a perfectly calm day, Ellison said. Theyre good, theyre strong. A wind comes in it helps us out, because no matter where you go in the U.S., its windy. Thats what were used to. Were not used to this calm stuff.The South Koreans were the picture of serenity.We trusted each other, and it happened, Kim said. This was teamwork. Everyone did good.
