Wieters, Davis, Jones Power Orioles Past Rays

FRED GOODALL, AP Sports Writer

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — Adam Jones keyed a seventh-inning rally with a two-run, go-ahead double and Chris Davis followed with a three-run homer Tuesday to help the Baltimore Orioles open the season with a 7-4 victory over the Tampa Bay Rays.

Matt Wieters homered early off AL Cy Young Award winner David Price. Wieters later drew an intentional walk from reliever Jake McGee (0-1) before Davis’ towering shot over the right-field wall broke open the game and silenced a sellout crowd of 34,078 at Tropicana Field.

Jason Hammel (1-0) allowed three runs and three hits in six innings. Jim Johnson pitched a scoreless ninth for a save.

Price was not particularly sharp in his second career opening-day start, but departed with a 3-2 lead after the Rays scored twice in the sixth.
