Rays Vs. Angels Recap: Pitching Shuts Down Halos In 2-0 Win

The Tampa Bay Rays held the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim to just four hits, while receiving just enough offense to pull out a 2-0 win on Sunday.

Jeremy Hellickson pitched six clean innings, allowing just two hits while walking none and striking out five. The Rays bullpen then shut their opposition down, including another stellar outing from closer Fernando Rodney.

The game was scoreless for the first five innings until the Rays finally broke it open with a Matt Joyce RBI single. In the seventh, the Rays tacked on another run after Zach Greinke threw a wild pitch.

In his debut with his new team, Greinke went seven innings allowing the two runs on seven hits while striking out eight.
