McClanahan stops 2-start skid, Rays beat Orioles 8-2

Estimated read time: Less than a minute

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — All-Star Shane McClanahan stopped a two-start losing streak, working six solid innings as the Tampa Bay Rays moved back in front of the Baltimore Orioles in the AL wild-card race with an 8-2 victory. The benches and bullpens briefly emptied after Rays reliever Pete Fairbanks struck out Robinson Chirinos to end the eighth. Fairbanks seemed unhappy earlier in the at-bat when Chirinos was granted a late timeout, and he said something to the Orioles catcher when leaving the mound. Chirinos spun around and headed toward the pitcher. Jose Siri had three hits and scored three runs for the Rays. Baltimore starter DL Hall allowed five runs in 3 2/3 innings in his major league debut.
