Extra bases

• Both the Rays and Orioles wore No. 42 jerseys for Tuesday's game to honor Jackie Robinson. This is the second straight game the Rays have worn No. 42; they also did it Monday in Boston.

• Desmond Jennings homered on the game's first pitch against Baltimore right-hander Jake Arrieta. It was the first homer of the season for Jennings, but he's tied for the American League lead in doubles with six.

• The 36 runs the Rays have scored is the second-lowest total in baseball so far this season.

• The Rays were swept by the Red Sox in Boston last weekend, which rested more on their offensive struggles than their pitching. The Tampa Bay staff allowed only nine runs (eight earned), but the offensive problems hurt once more.
