Rays Vs. Angels: Tampa Bay Holds On For 3-0 Win

The Tampa Bay Rays got just enough hitting. Tallying three runs on three hits over the first three innings, the Rays would grab the early lead to preserve a 3-0 win over the Los Angeles Angels on Saturday night in Anaheim.

Their early-inning scoring was highlighted by a solo homer from Ben Zobrist in the third.

The Rays, who snapped a two-game losing skid, got a solid start from Matt Moore, who tossed 103 pitches over six and one-third scoreless innings, striking out six to improve to 7-7 on the season. The Tampa Bay pitchers would limit the Halos to just five hits and just one extra base hit, a double from catcher Bobby Wilson.

Fernando Rodney would record the save, his 29th, retiring three straight batters in the ninth.

The rubber-match finale is scheduled for Sunday at 3:35 p.m. EST.
