ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) - Matt Joyce led off the bottom of the ninth inning with a towering home run against Tommy Hunter, giving the Tampa Bay Rays an 8-7 victory over the Baltimore Orioles on Wednesday night.

Shelley Duncan hit a three-run homer and Ben Zobrist had a pair of RBI singles for the Rays, who twice came from behind before wasting a late two-run lead.

Fernando Rodney (1-0) blew a save opportunity by allowing a run for the first time since last Aug. 18. Brian Roberts' RBI double off Rodney in the ninth made it 7-all.

Chris Davis went 4 for 4 for the Orioles, hitting a three-run homer for the second straight day and driving in four runs. He also had an RBI single and a double.
