BALTIMORE -- Wei-Yin Chen pitched better than he had all season, and Tampa Bay Rays right-hander Chris Archer was never worse. The result was a lopsided 7-1 victory for the Baltimore Orioles, who got their offence back on track Monday night at Archers expense. Chen (2-1) retired his first 10 batters and didnt allow a hit until James Loney doubled with one out in the fifth. The left-hander gave up one run, five hits and two walks in 6 1-3 innings. In his previous two starts, Chen yielded eight runs and 21 hits in 10 2-3 innings. "I think the main difference tonight was the movement on my pitches was better and the hitters had more trouble with it," Chen said through a translator. Chen also got a big assist from his defence, beginning with the first play of the game when third baseman Ryan Flaherty snagged a sharp grounder and threw out Ben Zobrist. "I thought balls went right at some fielders," Orioles manager Buck Showalter said. "We were fortunate tonight. Real good defence. ... The baseball gods were kind to him tonight after not being kind to him early on." 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. In this one, Baltimore built a 6-0 lead over the first three innings and coasted to the finish. The Orioles had 13 hits, including five doubles. "A lot of big two-out hits, a lot of big RBIs with guys on second," Wieters said. "It wasnt really the long ball that did it tonight, but we found a way to win." It was by far the poorest of Archers 30 big league starts. The seven runs and 12 hits he allowed were both career highs, and his ERA jumped from 1.38 to 4.50. "I actually felt good about how my stuff was," Archer said. "I just made too many mistakes -- and thats a good lineup." The performance came less than two weeks after the Rays gave Archer a six-year contract that guarantees the right-hander $25.5 million. "If there is anything to take away from this game, I think its how positive and encouraging my teammates were," Archer said. "They fully believe in me, and when I came out they all said, In five days, youre going to make somebody pay." Chen was facing a Tampa Bay team that has been struggling at the plate. The Rays have scored only 14 runs in their last eight games and have tallied three runs or fewer in seven of the last eight. "We did hit some balls well. Our geometry is really bad right now. Were hitting balls at people," manager Joe Maddon said. "We just have to keep going up there and battling through it. Its just one of those bad periods." Tampa Bays only run came in the sixth inning when Zobrist walked and scored on a single by Evan Longoria. The outcome, however, was decided long before that. Wieters gave the Orioles a 1-0 lead with a two-out RBI single in the first inning, and Baltimore added three runs in the second. Hardy doubled and Flaherty sliced an RBI single past the drawn-in infield before Nelson Cruz and Chris Davis delivered run-scoring doubles. Doubles by Wieters and Hardy, followed by Steve Lombardozzis RBI single, made it 6-0 in the third. Singles by Wieters, Hardy and Flaherty gave the Orioles a 7-0 cushion in the fifth. The seven runs were more than the Orioles scored in 11 of their previous 12 games. "Its nice to go out there and pitch like we did, hit like we did," Hardy said. "Its just good to play a good game." NOTES: RHP Jake Odorizzi, scheduled to start Tuesday night for Tampa Bay, experienced flu-like symptoms and was sent back to the team hotel as a precaution. It appeared to be the same virus that sidelined Rays reliever Joel Peralta last weekend. ... Miguel Gonzalez is slated to start for the Orioles on what is projected to be a cold, wet Tuesday evening. ... Orioles 3B Manny Machado (knee) ran six 90-foot sprints in Florida and is slated to run from home to second base Tuesday, Showalter said. ... Tampa Bay optioned LHP Jeff Beliveau to Triple-A Durham and recalled RHP Brad Boxberger from the same minor league club. ... Tampa Bay OF Brandon Guyer was interviewed before the game by D.C. sports anchor Lindsay Murphy, who is also his wife. ... Since the start of last season, the Rays are 14-1 when Archer goes at least six innings and 2-9 when he doesnt. Ronald Jones II Jersey . Louis, MO (SportsNetwork.

Bryan Anger Jersey .com) - Sixth-seeded Feliciano Lopez was a first-round winner on Monday at the Delray Beach Open tennis event.The Winnipeg Jets arent too concerned with how pretty their victories look, just as long as they keep piling up. Attempting to win five straight for the first time in two seasons tonight, the Jets take on a Columbus Blue Jackets team thats looking to sweep a three-game trip heading into the All-Star break. You can listen to the game live on TSN Radio 1290 Winnipeg at 6:30pm ct. Though Winnipeg (25-14-8) blew a two-goal, third-period lead Sunday, Bryan Little prevented a full-on collapse by scoring the only shootout goal in a 4-3 win over Arizona. Wed rather not win that way and give up leads, but at the same time we are still managing to get wins and we are still managing to stick with it and come away (with points), said Little, who scored in regulation for the second straight game and has 16 points in his last 14. Owners of the top wild-card spot in the Western Conference, the Jets current 5-0-1 run marks the fourth time this season theyve earned at least a point in five consecutive contests. There was a lot of good in this block (of games), said coach Paul Maurice, whose team has totaled 27 goals in the last six. Keying that stretch have been Michael Frolik with six points and defenseman Dustin Byfuglien - the Jets lone All-Star representative in Columbus this weekend - with three goals and six assists. They have Winnipeg in position to win five in a row for the first time since April 6-18, 2013. I think we are on a roll and we want to keep going, said Frolik, who has two goals in the past three games. Winnipeg won 4-2 in Columbus on Nov. 25 in the teams only meeting as Evander Kane scored twice while Little and Andrew Ladd each had a goal with an assist. The Jets, however, have been outscored 15-6 during a four-game home skid to Columbus (20-21-3), which recorded three of those victories in Atlanta. Mark Letestu haad two goals and James Wisniewski added two assists in a 6-3 win in the Blue Jackets only trip to Winnipeg on Jan.dddddddddddd 11 last year. Wisniewski had the go-ahead goal and two assists Monday at Minnesota as Columbus scored twice in the third period to win 3-1, just as it did two nights earlier in Boston. Those two victories followed a four-game slide during which the Blue Jackets totaled seven goals. Weve been having more of a game plan of making it a battle in front of their net. Forwards going there and just throwing pucks there, Wisniewski said. Coming out with two victories is a huge accomplishment. Wisniewski has a goal with six assists in his last six games versus Winnipeg. All-Star Sergei Bobrovsky, who snapped a four-game losing streak Monday, has stopped 49 of 52 shots in two starts after posting a 4.05 goals-against average in his previous three. Bobrovsky, who made 28 saves against Winnipeg in November, is 0-3-1 with a 4.33 GAA in his last five starts against the Jets franchise and allowed five goals three times. Fellow All-Star Ryan Johansens 13-game point streak (eight goals, eight assists) ended Monday, but he has three goals and two assists in four games versus Winnipeg.
