Bedard, Rays shut down O's

Updated: Saturday, June 28 2014, 11:02 PM EDT

BALTIMORE (AP) -- Desmond Jennings opened the game with the first of Tampa Bay's three home runs off Wei-Yin Chen, and the Rays got an impressive pitching performance from former Oriole Erik Bedard in a 5-4 victory over Baltimore on Saturday.


Tampa Bay built a five-run lead in the fourth inning, then held off a late comeback bid to improve to 3-8 against the Orioles this season.


Logan Forsythe and rookie Kevin Kiermaier each hit a two-run shot against Chen (7-3), who lasted only 3 1-3 innings in the shortest outing of his three-year career. Of the 15 home runs Chen has yielded this season, five have come against the light-hitting Rays.


Tampa Bay started the day tied for 25th in the majors with 59 home runs and hit only two its previous nine games.
