ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) Ryne Stanek, Anthony Banda and Chaz Roe combined to give up three hits on a bullpen day as the Tampa Bay Rays beat the Baltimore Orioles 5-1 on Saturday.
With the Rays thin in the rotation, Banda (1-0) entered with two outs in the second. He wound up allowing one run and three hits while striking out seven over 6 1/3 innings.
The left-hander held Baltimore hitless until Danny Valencia tripled to start the fifth. Valencia was left stranded when Banda struck out Chris Davis and Joey Rickard, and got a grounder from Andrew Susac
