Are the Tampa Bay Rays still supposed to be able to play defense like this?

The Rays bailed themselves out of trouble repeatedly Tuesday night, moving to .500 with a 3-1 victory over the Baltimore Orioles. The Rays have surrendered only one run in two games against Baltimore.

It helps when a team can play defense. The Rays turned three double plays Tuesday night. Kevin Kiermaier made another impressive catch in center field. And Jake Odorizzi picked a runner off of first base.
