ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) - 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 Tampa Bay Rays completed a four-game sweep that put a serious damper in Baltimore's wild-card hopes with a 5-4 victory Monday.

The Orioles also lost All-Star third baseman Manny Machado to a leg injury in the top of the seventh. Machado's left leg buckled when he stepped on first base running out an infield single. He was taken off on a stretcher.

The win pushed the Rays a full game ahead of idle Cleveland for the top AL wild card. Baltimore fell five games back of the Indians with six games to go for both teams.
