ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) -- Jeremy Hellickson threw a four-hitter, Reid Brignac had three RBIs and the Tampa Bay Rays beat the Baltimore Orioles 8-1 on Sunday.
Hellickson (12-10) has two complete games this season, both against the Orioles. The rookie right-hander tossed a four-hitter in a 3-0 win against Baltimore on May 13.
Tampa Bay scored four times with two out in the third to take a 6-0 lead. Evan Longoria came home when third baseman Mark Reynolds misplayed Brandon Guyer's grounder, and Brignac followed with a three-run double.
Adam Jones hit his 23rd homer of the season for the Orioles.
