Tampa Bay Rays' B.J. Upton flings his bat after striking out against Baltimore Orioles starting pitcher Kevin Millwood with the bases loaded during the seventh inning of a baseball game Wednesday, Sept. 29, 2010, in St. Petersburg, Fla.

Kevin Millwood allowed two hits over seven innings, Felix Pie hit a two-run triple and the Baltimore Orioles beat the Tampa Bay Rays 2-0 before a capacity crowd of 36,973 on Wednesday night.

The Rays gave away 20,000 tickets for the regular-season home finale. Fans begin lining up outside the domed stadium several hours before gametime. The team said the allotment of free tickets was exhausted about 45 minutes before first pitch.

Millwood (4-16) struck out seven and walked three. Jim Johnson gave up a single during the eighth before Koji Uehara completed a three-hitter and picked up his 11th save.
