Rays continue push toward AL East title against Orioles

The Tampa Bay Rays are making a run at the American League East title, and their lead is up to 3 1/2 games after sweeping the host Baltimore Orioles in a doubleheader Thursday.

The victory in the nightcap of the twin bill assured the Rays of making the AL playoff field. Still, the Rays are going to keep pushing, and they will try for a third straight win versus Baltimore when the teams meet Friday at Camden Yards.

The Rays had some problems at the plate recently, and manager Kevin Cash said that it's time to make the bats come alive again.
