The Orioles (8-7) overcame four solo home runs by the Rays to win their 17th-straight extra innings game.

“I felt like it was going to go,” Wieters said. “I knew it was going to get a run in, whether it went out or not. I knew the game was going to be over. That was a good feeling.”

Troy Patton (1-0) took the win for the Orioles.

David Price started the game for Tampa Bay and gave up five runs and eight hits in six innings pitched.
