Baltimore, MD (Sports Network) - Matt Joyce's two-run double was the go-ahead hit in a six-run ninth inning, as Tampa Bay rallied past Baltimore, 10-6, in the middle test of a three-game set from Camden Yards.

Jim Johnson (1-4) entered with a two-run lead, but Kelly Johnson's one-out homer made it 6-5. Jose Lobaton and Yunel Escobar both walked and a Desmond Jennings single loaded the bases. Joyce stepped in and roped a double to the gap in right center for a 7-6 contest, and Darren O'Day came on, only to be greeted with a Ben Zobrist RBI double.

Evan Longoria reached second on a hot shot behind first base, and James Loney drew a free pass ahead of Luke Scott's walk which forced in Zobrist to make it 10-6. Johnson then grounded into a double play to end the threat.

Josh Lueke stranded a runner on second to close out the contest. Alex Torres (1-0) tossed four hitless relief innings for the win.

Joyce ended with three hits, including a two-run homer and five RBI for the Rays, who won their second straight in the series and eight of 10 overall.

Adam Jones slugged a two-run homer and drove in three for the Orioles, who saw their franchise-record 109-game win streak when leading after seven innings evaporate.
