The loss takes the Rays out of the group of unbeaten Major League Baseball, while the Tigers at 4-0 are still in the company of the New York Mets and Arizona Diamondbacks as teams who have yet to lose a game this season.
In Tuesday's loss, the Rays went toe-to-toe with the Tigers as the teams were tied up 2-2 until an eighth-inning spurt that separated Detroit from Tampa. Eight-inning RBIs from Prince Fielder and Gerald Laird and a sacrifice fly by Jhonny Peralta led to the Rays' first loss of the season.
Tampa Bay's Matt Moore allowed two runs and four hits in 6 2-3 innings in what was just his second career regular season start. The 22-year old pitcher also walked five - one intentionally - and struck out four batters.
