ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — The Tampa Bay Rays are confident they’ll play at Tropicana Field again this year.
Wil Myers tied it with a two-run single on a jarring play in the seventh inning then pinch-hitter James Loney stunned the Orioles with a leadoff homer in the ninth, and the Rays completed a four-game sweep that put a serious damper in Baltimore’s wild-card hopes with a 5-4 victory Monday.
‘‘You can feel it, you can’t necessarily describe it, but it’s there,’’ Rays manager Joe Maddon said ‘‘You know that your guys have that vibe going on. It’s a good feeling.’’
The win pushed the Rays a game ahead of idle Cleveland for the top AL wild card. Baltimore fell five games back of the Indians. Full story for BostonGlobe.com subscribers.
