ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) - Matt Moore overcame control problems to allow one run over six innings and the Tampa Bay Rays beat the Toronto Blue Jays 5-1 on Tuesday night.
Moore (10-3) tied career highs with six walks and 11 strikeouts en route to his 10th win this season and second straight after a three-game skid. The left-hander gave up four hits.
Tampa Bay rookie Wil Myers had an RBI single during a three-run fourth. Considered one of baseball's top prospects, the outfielder has eight RBIs in nine games since being called up June 18 from Triple-A Durham.
Mark Buehrle (4-5) gave up four runs, eight hits and four walks in five innings for the Blue Jays, who have lost two in a row since arriving at Tropicana Field after tying a franchise record with 11 consecutive wins.
