    Chris Archer, making his 2013 home debut, turned in the best performance of his brief Major League career on Friday, holding the slugging Orioles to one run on two hits in seven innings as the Rays beat Baltimore, 2-1, at Tropicana Field on the strength of Desmond Jennings' two-run homer. I was just sticking with what I felt and what was working," Archer said. Archer, who struggled in his season debut last Saturday in Cleveland, retired the final seven Orioles he faced and 13 of the last 14 to claim his second big league win in a pitchers' duel with Jason Hammel. "That," Rays' manager Joe Maddon said, "is what we are supposed to look like. Hammel, the former Ray who leads the Orioles with seven wins, held Tampa Bay to three hits and had retired eight in a row until James Loney lined a single to center leading off the seventh inning. The 24-year-old right-hander spent the first two months of the season at Triple-A Durham and allowed five runs and seven hits in four innings of a 5-0 loss to Cleveland after being promoted to the majors last weekend.
