BALTIMORE (AP) -- B.J. Upton drove in four runs to cap a memorable weekend, and the Tampa Bay Rays beat the Baltimore Orioles 5-3 Sunday for a three-game sweep.
Matt Joyce hit two doubles and scored twice for the Rays, who set a single-season franchise record with their eighth consecutive road win. Tampa Bay is 20-8 overall since starting the season with six straight defeats, including three at home against the Orioles to open the season.
After hitting a three-run homer on Saturday, Upton had a pair of two-run singles Sunday. He went 5 for 9 over the weekend and is batting .297 with nine homers and 31 RBIs in 39 games at Camden Yards.
Derrek Lee homered for the last-place Orioles, who have lost four straight to fall a season-high five games under .500 (14-19). Baltimore got only six hits.
