ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) - Wei-Yin Chen allowed five hits in seven innings, Chris Davis had two RBIs, and the Baltimore Orioles beat the Tampa Bay Rays 4-0 on Saturday.

Chen (10-6) struck out four and walked one, improving to 4-1 in his past six road starts. After Pedro Strop gave up a single in the eighth, closer Jim Johnson pitched the ninth in a non-save situation to complete a six-hitter.

The Orioles took a 4-0 lead on Davis' two-run single in the fourth off Jeremy Hellickson (6-7). Davis has driven in 12 runs during a nine-game hitting streak.

Hellickson lasted just four innings, allowing four runs and eight hits. The right-hander struck out four and walked four.
