ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Baltimore Orioles manager Buck Showalter came into this series with the Tampa Bay Rays showing a real urgency, challenging his team to push for every win possible as they chase the Blue Jays and Red Sox in the American League East.Baltimore has responded in a big way, getting two easy wins over the Rays to pull within one game of Toronto for the division lead, with a chance to sweep Tampa Bay as they close out the series Wednesday afternoon.This is a tough place to play, said Showalter, whose team is now 11-3 against the Rays this season. Youve got to be a self-starter and get yourself ready to play, because next thing you know, you can get ambushed. Theyre capable of good baseball.The Rays are in danger of taking their first series sweep since the All-Star break as a team that had a 3-24 stretch going into the break has consistently avoided losing streaks like that in the past two months.But on the very day they fired hitting coach Derek Shelton, the Rays went 0-for-8 with runners in scoring position Tuesday, getting a home run from the first batter of the game, then just one unearned run the rest of the way.I know its been ugly the last couple of days, manager Kevin Cash said after Tuesdays loss, his teams third straight. When you have some big innings like weve had go against us, it appears worse than it is at times. We want to win, and were not playing to our abilities, but we have played better baseball as of late.Wednesdays Orioles starter, Dylan Bundy, has come a long way since making his first start of the season at the Trop against the Rays. Transitioning out of the bullpen, he lasted only 3 1/3 innings, giving up four runs in a 5-2 loss.But since then hes gone 6-3, becoming a steady part of the rotation. In his last outing, he threw 5 2/3 innings of scoreless baseball, holding the Yankees to two hits in a win on Friday.Rays starter Drew Smyly has had success against Baltimore in his career, going 4-1 with a 3.22 ERA in nine appearances. That wasnt the case in his last outing, however, as he gave up eight earned runs, matching a career high, in five innings in a loss on June 26 that included a grand slam to Chris Davis and home runs to Mark Trumbo and Jonathan Schoop.The Rays had lessened the sting of their late-season irrelevance by playing much improved baseball in the last two months, but three straight losses have taken away some of that momentum.The best we can do is bounce back tomorrow and play a good ballgame, said Cash, who will face the same Orioles team four more times next weekend in Baltimore.

WASHINGTON -- For the new-look Miami Heat, a high-scoring victory over the Washington Wizards proved winning is possible on a bad defensive night.Goran Dragic scored 22 points, Hassan Whiteside added 18 and 18 rebounds and the Heat beat the Wizards 114-111 despite some rough moments on the defensive end.James Johnson had 17 points off the bench for Miami, which both scored and allowed its most points all season to register its first back-to-back wins.Its a huge game for us, said Dragic, whose team entered Saturday ranked third in the league in average points allowed. Were not a team that runs a whole lot. ... But we just need to grind. And we did that tonight.Miami got its first road victory since its season opener despite 34 points each from Washingtons John Wall and Bradley Beal, both good for season highs.Dion Waiters scored 16 points for Miami, and Josh Richardson hit four 3-pointers among his 15 points as Miami went 13 for 27 (48.1 percent) from beyond the arc. In all, six Heat players scored in double figures.We try to get to the paint and attack, Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said. But teams have been really loading up on that, and so were trying to develop some more trust, some more ball movement to make teams pay for that.Miami shot 57.7 percent from the floor, almost 16 full points above its season average entering Saturday.They had some guys that usually dont make shots that made shots because they were basically workout shots -- there was nobody there to contest them, Wall said. I think we came out with intensity. I just think our one-on-one defense was terrible.Behind Wall and Beal, center Marcin Gortat scored 10 points and grabbed 16 rebounds. But no other Wizards hit double figures on a night Washington lost starting forward Markieff Morris to a sprained right ankle in the second quarter.Aftter Dragics jumper gave Miami a 60-59 lead to end the first half, the Heat opened the third quarter on a 10-4 run, stretching their lead to 70-63 on Whitesides bank shot.ddddddddddddLater in the third, Miami built its lead to 13 after a 12-4 stretch.

The third quarter was good for us.Washington trailed by as many as 17 in the fourth, before closing the game on a 10-1 run. That was a little deceiving, with Walls second 3-pointer in that stretch coming with 0.9 seconds left.TIP-INSHeat: Improved to 3-0 when scoring 100 or more points ...

F Willie Reed left early in the second quarter with a hyperextended right knee.Wizards: Sank to 1-8 when opponents score 100 or more points, and 3-5 in games when both Wall and Beal start. ...
