Morrison homers twice, Rays batter Orioles

BALTIMORE -- Logan Morrison hit two of Tampa Bay's four home runs, leading the Rays past the Baltimore Orioles 10-3 on Saturday.

Tampa Bay can complete its first three-game sweep in Baltimore since 2013 with a win on Sunday. The Orioles have lost three of their past four and allowed 10 runs or more 11 times this season.

Morrison now has a career-high 24 home runs. Steven Souza and Wilson Ramos also homered for the Rays.

Baltimore's Manny Machado had a single in the third, snapping an 0-for-17 skid. Jonathan Schoop hit his 16th home run for Baltimore.

Rays right-hander Jake Odorizzi (5-3) was charged with three runs on five hits with three strikeouts and two walks over five innings. He has allowed at least three earned runs in six straight starts and given up a home run in his past 13 outings.

The Rays took a 3-0 lead off Dylan Bundy (8-7) in the first when Mallex Smith scored from first on a single by Evan Longoria and Morrison followed with a homer.

Baltimore cut the lead to 3-1 on a two-out RBI single by Craig Gentry. Tampa Bay responded in the third with solo homers by Morrison and Souza, the 11th time the Rays have hit back-to-back home runs this season.

Bundy was pitching on six days' rest and made back-to-back starts against Tampa Bay. The time off did not help him as he labored through just four innings, allowing five runs on seven hits with seven strikeouts,.

It was the shortest start of the season for Bundy, who has given up a home run in 11 straight games.

Ramos' three-run shot off Alec Asher provided an 8-1 lead in the fifth. After Schoop's two-run homer cut into the margin, the Rays answered with two more runs in the sixth on a throwing error by right fielder Gentry and a double by Corey Dickerson
