Zach Britton couldn't contain the surging Tampa Bay Rays, as the O's dropped their third straight game in a 5-2 loss on Monday night at Camden Yards.
Britton (9-10) lasted just five innings, giving up four runs on five hits and four walks while striking out two.
Robert Andino's RBI double in the fifth put the Birds on the board, and Matt Wieters slapped a solo homer (his 18th) in the sixth. The O's managed just six hits through nine innings.
The two clubs battle again on Tuesday night...the Orioles are once again 30 games under .500 while the Rays are just three games behind Boston in the race for the Wild Card.
