Wieters winner
Photos
Orioles 4, Rays 2
Chris Tillman pitched well enough to win, but had to settle for the no-decision. (AP)
Matt Wieters threw out Carl Crawford twice before hitting a game-winning home run in the ninth off Russ Springer to beat the Rays. Rookie starter Chris Tillman allowed just one run on five hits and one walk over 6 2/3 innings.
