BALTIMORE (AP) - Less than 24 hours after absorbing a painful defeat against the worst team in the majors, the Tampa Bay Rays again blew a four-run lead and found themselves in a tie game with the Baltimore Orioles.

This time, the Rays - and All-Star closer Rafael Soriano - delivered.

Evan Longoria homered, drove in two runs and scored twice, and Tampa Bay rebounded to beat the Orioles 5-4 Wednesday.

The victory followed an 11-10, 13-inning defeat Tuesday night during which the Rays had an 8-4 lead in the seventh and a 10-9 advantage in the 12th. Soriano yielded a two-run double to Miguel Tejada in the ninth for only his second blown save opportunity.

Willy Aybar had two hits and an RBI for the Rays, who improved to 7-2 against Baltimore, including 5-1 at Camden Yards.
