MLB: Tampa Bay 3, Baltimore 1

Willy Aybar went 3-for-4 with an RBI Tuesday to lead the Tampa Bay Rays to a 3-1 win over the Baltimore Orioles, who have lost 12 straight.

Ben Zobrist drove in a run and scored once and B.J. Upton had an RBI for the Rays, who have won eight of their last 11 games.

Wade Davis (2-1) gave up one run on seven hits and three walks for the win. Over five starts in September, Davis has allowed just 27 hits and 12 earned runs in 31 1/3 innings, with 31 strikeouts.

Luke Scott drove in the lone run for the Orioles. Baltimore fell a season-worst 37 games under .500 (60-97) and is three defeats away from its first 100-loss since going 54-107 in 1988.

Jeremy Guthrie (10-17) gave up three runs on seven hits in seven innings take the loss.
