Dickerson has go-ahead hit in 7th, Rays beat Orioles 7-6

ST. PETERSBURG, FLA. (AP) - Corey Dickerson had a go-ahead RBI double in the seventh inning to help the Tampa Bay Rays beat Baltimore 7-6 on Wednesday and deny the Orioles a three-game sweep.

Baltimore started the day one game ahead of Detroit for the second AL wild card and one game back of AL East co-leaders Boston and Toronto.

Dickerson, in a 2 for 28 slide, tied the score 6-all with an RBI single in the fifth and got the decisive hit during the seventh off Mychal Givens (8-2).

J.J. Hardy drove in two on a second-inning double and Michael Bourn hit a solo homer during a three-run third that put Baltimore ahead 5-3.
