Devil Rays update

Tampa Bay comes limping into Baltimore to conclude a 10-game road trip. The Devil Rays are coming off a four-game sweep by the Boston Red Sox and are 1-6 on the trip. Tampa Bay has scored the second-fewest runs in the American League. It also has blown 33 leads this season, the highest number in the majors. Jonny Gomes is in a 2-for-21 slump. However, outfielder Carl Crawford is 12-for-23 recently. Shields was recalled from Triple-A and will make his major league debut with Casey Fossum on the disabled list. The Orioles are 5-2 against the Devil Rays this year and beat Kazmir, one of the AL's top young pitchers, on Opening Day.
