The Tampa Bay Rays have won nine of their last ten games, but remain on the outside of the playoff race after a 10-4 win over the Chicago White Sox. Matt Moore threw 5⅓ innings of one hit ball for his 11th win of the year. Chris Sale took the loss for the White Sox, giving up five runs in only 3⅓ innings of work. Sale did manage to strike out seven. Chris Archer earned a rare three inning save.
Matt Joyce hit two home runs for the Rays, and Jeff Keppinger and Chris Gimenez each contributed one home run a piece. Orlando Hudson hit a grand slam in the ninth for the White Sox in the eight inning, but the game was no longer in doubt by that point.
The Rays, despite the win, failed to gain any ground on the Athletics for the final wildcard spot. Tampa will look to finish off the White Sox series with a win on Sunday. First pitch is set for 2:10 p.m. ET.
