ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. - The drama over Sammy Sosa's first home run as an Oriole ended last night, leaving them with one small detail that needed their immediate attention. They still had to win a game. Brian Roberts flexed more muscle with his fourth homer, reliever Todd Williams produced two scoreless innings at a critical juncture, and B.J. Ryan escaped a huge jam in the ninth to give the Orioles a 7-6 victory over the Tampa Bay Devil Rays before 10,563. Ryan a l l owed a leadoff triple to Aubrey Huff and walked Josh Phelps before striking out the next two batters and retiring pinch-hitter Eduardo Perez.
