Schoop has 10 game-winning RBIs, one behind team leader Chris Davis. "Every win is a big win especially second half of the season". OF Hyun Soo Kim (right hamstring) may not start this weekend....

"We felt, or I felt, that Arch was the best option there to get those two righties", Rays manager Kevin Cash said of Archer's no-decision. "They're a good hitting team, they battled, put the ball in play, but it happens".

"It's just fun watching a young player with the game starting to slow down for him", Orioles manager Buck Showalter said. "He's letting the game come to him and he's always in fire mode".

Givens (7-1) worked a scoreless seventh for the win one day after his daughter was born. The Orioles tied the score in the sixth, getting a leadoff double from Manny Machado, who advanced to third on a single by Mark Trumbo.
