Rays aiming for rare 5-game sweep of Orioles

Teams often sweep a series during the baseball season, but the Tampa Bay Rays have a chance to pull off something unusual Sunday -- the completion of a five-game sweep over the host Baltimore Orioles.

The Rays have won the first four games of the series as they battle to lock up the American League East title. Tampa Bay's 3-1 win over the slumping Orioles on Saturday gave them a magic number of four for the division crown.

And the Rays (35-18) could be getting stronger with catcher Mike Zunino likely coming back. He's struggled on offense but is a solid defensive catcher that helps Tampa Bay and has been out with a left oblique strain.
