ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — Tyler Glasnow took a one-hitter into the eighth inning and Willy Adames homered in the seventh to help the Tampa Bay Rays beat the sputtering Texas Rangers 1-0. 

The Rangers were shut out for the third time in four games. Glasnow fanned a career-high 14 in 7 2/3 innings to finally get his first win of the season after pitching well but not being involved in the decision in two previous starts.

Adames homered off Taylor Hearn (0-1) with two outs, just the third hit yielded by Texas pitchers.
