Rays End Losing Streak With Big Win Over Angels

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Matt Moore pitched into the sixth inning in his return from the disabled list, and the Tampa Bay Rays got home runs from Desmond Jennings and Yunel Escobar in a 7-1 victory over the Los Angeles Angels on Tuesday night.

Moore (15-3) won his seventh straight decision, yielding an unearned run and four hits in 5 1-3 innings as the Rays snapped a five-game losing streak and remained 5½ games behind AL East-leading Boston. The All-Star left-hander, who missed the entire month of August because of elbow soreness, won six straight starts before getting a no-decision his previous time out on July 28 at Yankee Stadium.

Roberto Hernandez struck out his first five batters after relieving Moore, and seven altogether in 3 2-3 perfect innings to record his first save.
