ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — Joey Wendle had an RBI double during a three-run first inning and the AL East-leading Tampa Bay Rays handed the Baltimore Orioles their record-setting 14th consecutive road loss, 5-4.

It is the longest skid since the team moved from St. Louis to Baltimore in 1954. The Orioles dropped 13 straight on the road in 2018 and also in 1988.

Since the beginning of May, the Rays are a major league-best 28-10.

Austin Wynns hit a grand slam for the Orioles, who are 0-5 against Tampa Bay this season.
