Rays Vs. Angels Final Score: Tampa Extends Win Streak With 8-3 Win

The Tampa Bay Rays got to Zack Greinke early and pulled away for an 8-3 win over the Los Angeles Angels. The Rays scored their first run in an unconventional way as Greinke hit Elliot Johnson with the bases loaded to force in the first run. Greinke followed with a walk to leadoff man B.J. Upton and Tampa suddenly had a 2-0 lead. Matt Joyce followed with a solid single that scored two and extended the lead to 4-0.

Mike Trout put Anaheim on the board with a solo homer in the fourth but Ryan Roberts followed with a two-run homer of his own in the fifth to make the score 6-1. An Albert Pujols solo shot drew the Angels a little closer but Carlos Pena slammed the door on any comeback attempt with his two-run double in the eighth.

Matt Moore worked 6 1/3 innings while allowing five hits and two runs to pick up his 10th win of the season. Greinke falls to 1-2 with the Angels and sees his ERA balloon to 6.19. Joyce, Pena and Roberts all drove in two runs for the Rays, who remain in the lead in the American League wildcard race.
