ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Enny Romero was watching Tampa Bays 18-inning win Friday night at home in the Dominican Republic and tweeted he was ready to pitch the following afternoon. Given an unexpected chance, the Rays left-hander made the most of the opportunity on Sunday. Romero combined with five relievers on a three-hitter in his major league debut, leading Tampa Bay over the Baltimore Orioles 3-1. Tampa Bay remained a half-game ahead of Cleveland in the AL wild-card race, and Texas dropped 1 1/2 games behind the Indians for the second berth. "Enny just shows up after he tweets that he belongs here ... so we actually read twitter," Rays manager Joe Maddon said with a smile. "For all our minor leaguers out there, get on twitter and you might end up in the big leagues for the playoff run. Its fun to watch that we can bring up somebody from the minor leagues, under these circumstances, against a very good team, and get that kind of result." Tampa Bay beat Baltimore for the third time in the four-game series. The Orioles fell 4 1/2 games behind Cleveland. "Well have to get little co-operation mathematically, but youd be surprised how quickly the outlook on things change in one days time," Baltimore manager Buck Showalter said. Dating to the final 11 innings of the Rays 5-4 victory on Friday night, Tampa Bay pitchers limited Baltimore to two runs and 10 hits over 29 innings. "The pitching has been outstanding," Maddon said. "Weve gotten enough hitting. The defence has been great." Promoted from Triple-A Durham earlier in the day, Romero gave up Manny Machados leadoff single starting the game. But that was the only hit off Romero, who walked four and struck out none in 4 2-3 innings. "Very happy to stay here with the Rays," Romero said. "I appreciate the Rays called me." Romero was home Saturday when he got a call from his agent saying the Rays wanted him pitch the next day. He played catch before heading to the airport to catch a flight to Florida. Brandon Gomes (3-1) replaced Romero with two on and two outs in the fifth and struck out Machado. "Enny pitched unbelievable, so it would be a waste to have that not come through with a win," Gomes said. Romero went 11-7 with Double-A Montgomery before throwing eight scoreless innings for Durham on Sept. 2. He also pitched out of the bullpen for the Bulls on Sept. 13 in the International League playoffs. Tampa Bays original scheduled Sunday starter, Jeremy Hellickson, came out of the bullpen Friday night and threw 2 1-3 scoreless innings for the win. Fernando Rodney allowed Danny Valencias single and an RBI double off an overhanging catwalk by Matt Wieters with two outs in the ninth en route to his 36th save. Scott Feldman (5-5) gave up three runs and six hits in 6 1-3 innings. "Basically were going to have win out and hope for the best on the other side," Orioles centerfielder Adam Jones. "We battle and we grind, and sometimes, as the saying goes, youre the bug and sometimes youre the windshield. The last couple days weve been the bug so we just have to get back to being that windshield." David DeJesus put the Rays up 1-0 on a leadoff homer in the first, a 10-pitch at-bat. It was his first homer since connecting on June 13 for the Chicago Cubs. Matt Joyce had a sacrifice fly and James Loney hit an RBI single during the sixth that made it 3-0. Rays third baseman Evan Longoria, hitting .263 with 29 homers and 77 RBIs, was a late scratch due to flulike symptoms. He entered in the eighth inning as a defensive replacement. Tampa Bay centerfielder Desmond Jennings, who reached on a bunt single in the sixth, left with left hamstring tightness after running toward second on a foul ball. He was scheduled to undergo an MRI NOTES: Maddon would like to see the wild-card playoff expand from one game to best-of-three. For those worried about making the season longer, Maddon thinks playing a doubleheader during the series could be a viable option. ... Orioles RHP Chris Tillman, who hurt an ankle during Thursdays game against Boston, remains scheduled to make his next start Tuesday. ... The Rays are expected to activate RHP Jesse Crain (right shoulder strain) on Monday. ... Tampa Bay selected the contract of RHP J.D. Martin from Durham to provide additional bullpen depth.

Ryan scored the winner Sunday as the Senators downed the Winnipeg Jets 3-1 in NHL pre-season action, while newly minted captain Jason Spezza had an assist and left-winger Milan Michalek scored and added an assist. "I think there was a few opportunities for us to do things differently, and thats just something that you learn about each other," said Ryan, who was acquired in an off-season trade with the Anaheim Ducks. "I know that there were a couple passes that Spezz meant for me that I thought were for Milan and they just kind of were a foot or two away and thats a matter of me trying to read off him a little better." Buddy Robinson scored Ottawas first goal at 7:58 of the opening period and Ryan added his 26 seconds into the second to give Ottawa a 2-0 lead. Sens defenceman Erik Karlsson had a pair of assists and Matt Halischuk scored Winnipegs lone goal. Karlsson liked what he saw of the Ryan-Spezza-Michalek line. "Its the first game, you know everybodys trying to feel it out a bit," Karlsson said. "Overall, I think they looked pretty good." Karlssons shot from the point 65 seconds into the thiird period was redirected by Michalek past goalie Michael Hutchinson to make it 3-1.dddddddddddd Hutchinson made 29 saves. Robin Lehner was in goal for the Sens for the first two periods and stopped 17-of-18 shots. He was replaced by Andrew Hammond to start the third. Hammond stopped all 10 shots he faced. Winnipeg lost its first exhibition game Saturday night in a 4-3 shootout against Washington in Belleville, Ont. The Jets experimented to start the game and didnt ice their usual top-line trio of Andrew Ladd, Bryan Little and Blake Wheeler. Little and Wheeler skated with newcomer Michael Frolik, acquired from the Chicago Blackhawks for third- and fifth-round picks in this years draft. Ladd, however, rejoined his linemates late in the opening period. "We started with Frolik and didnt really get much going," Little said. "And even when Laddie came and played with us, we kind of struggled a bit still. "Were still trying to work out the kinks. We havent played a game in five months or so, so were just trying to shake the rust off." The Jets were sitting a number of their players who had suited up in Belleville, including forwards Evander Kane, Devin Setoguchi and Mark Scheifele. ' ' '
