Devil Rays update

If three days have passed, it must be time for another Orioles-Devil Rays series. These teams have already played seven times this year, with the Orioles winning four and losing three. After leaving Baltimore on Monday night, Tampa Bay came back and won its first two games against Toronto. Rocco Baldelli, the Devil Rays' 21-year-old center fielder, had the game-winning hit on Wednesday, and his .367 average ranks seventh in the American League. Devil Rays outfielder Ben Grieve had exploratory surgery on his infected left thumb yesterday and will probably miss another month. Tonight, McClung will be making his first major league start. He's made seven relief appearances this season. Helling went eight shutout innings, and the Orioles beat Parris, 4-0, Monday.
