BALTIMORE (AP) — Matt Moore pitched seven innings of five-hit ball to stay unbeaten, Luke Scott and Matt Joyce homered and the Tampa Bay Rays beat the Baltimore Orioles 3-1 Sunday for a three-game sweep.
Moore (8-0) gave up one run, struck out three and walked one. The left-hander has won nine straight decisions, breaking the franchise record of eight set last year by David Price.

BALTIMORE (AP) — Alex Gordon and Eric Hosmer homered in a four-run fourth inning, Jeremy Guthrie pitched effectively against his former team and the Kansas City Royals defeated the Baltimore Orioles 6-2 Thursday night to avoid a three-game sweep.
Gordon and Hosmer both connected against Freddy Garcia (0-1) with a runner on. It was Gordon's third home run in three games and Hosmer's first in 145 at-bats dating back to last year.
Mike Moustakas also homered for the Royals, who snapped a three-game skid and averted being swept for the first time this season.
