Baltimore, MD - Matt Joyce hit a go-ahead two-run double in a six-run ninth-inning rally, lifting the Tampa Bay Rays to a 10-6 victory over the Orioles on Saturday, ending Baltimore's franchise-record streak of 109 straight wins when leading after seven innings.

Joyce also homered and finished 3 for 5 with five RBIs.

It was the third straight road victory for the Rays, all of them come-from-behind wins.

Trailing 6-4, Kelly Johnson hit a one-out homer off Orioles closer Jim Johnson (1-4), whose club-record streak of 35 straight saves ended Tuesday.

Johnson then loaded the bases on two walks and a hit before Joyce hit a two-run double to the right-center gap for a 7-6 lead. Ben Zobrist followed with a two-run double off Darren O'Day, who later issued a bases-loaded walk to Luke Scott.

Adam Jones and Chris Davis homered for the Orioles, who have lost four straight.
