The game had a moment of controversy  in the sixth inning. Tampa Bay led 2-1 in the sixth inning when Matt Joyce hit a drive that appeared to bounce off the wall near the right-field foul pole. First base umpire Dan Iassogna called it a fair ball but not a home run.

Thats led to Orioles manager Buck Showalter arguing that it was a foul ball and Tampa Bay manager Joe Maddon contendingit was a home run. After a lengthy meeting, the umpires adjourned to watch a replay and returned with their decision: home run.

Joel Peralta pitched a perfect eight inning and Fernando Rodney bounced back from a horrific outing his last time out against the Red Sox on Thursday to earn his eighth save of the season.
