By David Ginsburg/AP

Rookie Alex Colome allowed two singles in 5 2-3 innings to earn his first win in over a year, and the Tampa Bay Rays beat the Baltimore Orioles 5-2 on Friday in the opener of a split doubleheader.

Brandon Guyer had three doubles, scored twice and drove in a run to help Tampa Bay improve to 2-7 against Baltimore this season. The Rays had lost 11 of their previous 13 games on the road.

Manny Machado homered for the Orioles, who finished with only three hits - one after the second inning.

Added to the roster for the doubleheader as the 26th man, Colome (1-0) gave up one run, walked four and struck out three in his fourth big league start. The right-hander is 2-1 lifetime, including a victory over Miami in his debut on May 30, 2013.

Jake McGee worked the ninth for his second save.
