Baltimore, MD. -- Jeremy Hellickson doesn't have to hear about May 16 anymore.

Before Tuesday, May 16 was the last time Hellickson had recorded a win, a stretch of nine consecutive starts.

Hellickson allowed only one run and three baserunners in 6 1/3 innings as the Rays beat the Orioles 3-1 at Camden Yards, an important first step in a nine-game road trip against fellow Wild Card contenders.
