BALTIMORE — The Orioles are beginning to get the solid starting pitching they could not find earlier this month. Starter Miguel Gonzalez threw five shutout innings before Zach Britton and Tommy Hunter combined for four more scoreless frames. Adam Jones, Matt Wieters and J.J. Hardy each knocked in a run to help the Orioles to a 3-0 victory over the Tampa Bay Rays on a cold Wednesday afternoon at Camden Yards. The Orioles (7-7) swept the rain-shortened two-game series with the Rays (7-8), helped by starting pitchers who gave up just one run in 11 1/3 innings.

HOUSTON — Lost amid the fawning and hoopla over the raw stuff Kansas City Royals rookie right-hander Yordano Ventura wields at his choosing was the fact that, entering Tuesday night, he had yet to record his first big-league win. Ventura reached that milestone with relative ease at Minute Maid Park on Tuesday, stifling the Houston Astros 4-2 to lead the Royals to their first road win. Ventura (1-0) made his season debut a week ago against the Tampa Bay Rays and did not factor in the decision despite working a career-high six innings. “I’m just really proud for him because that was like his fifth time he’s gone for his first win and he’s had an opportunity to win ballgames two or three times and we couldn’t hold it for him,” Royals manager Ned Yost said of Ventura.

BALTIMORE — The rainout of the Tampa Bay-Baltimore Orioles game on Tuesday gave the Rays a much needed reprieve with their beleaguered starting pitching. Right-hander Jake Odorizzi was scheduled to start Tuesday night, but he came down with an illness the previous day. Even though Odorizzi was available, the Rays did not want to test him in the rainy, cold conditions at Camden Yards. Tampa Bay manager Joe Maddon was ready to use right-hander Brandon Gomes in a spot start, but once the game was postponed, he was able to get Odorizzi back on the mound for Wednesday’s regularly scheduled game.

BALTIMORE — Tampa Bay manager Joe Maddon is having to piece together a starting rotation after three starters are down with injuries. The biggest loss is left-hander Matt Moore, who has decided to undergo Tommy John surgery on his injured left elbow April 22, the Tampa Bay Times reported Monday. Moore made the decision after Monday afternoon’s throwing session, saying the discomfort he felt made it clear he could not pitch with a partially torn ulnar collateral ligament. Adding to the Rays’ pitching woes, an MRI over the weekend revealed that Alex Cobb could miss up to six weeks with a strained oblique.

Wei-Yin Chen took a four-hitter into the seventh inning and the Baltimore Orioles got their offense back on track against Chris Archer in a 7-1 victory over the Tampa Bay Rays on Monday night. Matt Wieters and J.J. Hardy each had three hits, scored twice and drove in a run for the Orioles, who were coming off a three-game series against Toronto in which they scored only five runs in 30 innings. The Orioles had 13 hits, including five doubles. It was by far the worst of Archer’s 30 big league starts.
