Rookie Matt Moore and two relievers combined on a one-hitter Friday night, helping the Tampa Bay Rays snap a three-game losing streak with an 11-0 victory over the Miami Marlins.
The game dragged on for nearly 4 hours as five Tampa Bay pitchers combined to throw 185 pitches, yet they allowed only one run. But it was a win. Tampa Bay wiggled out of several jams Friday night to beat the slumping Miami Marlins 5-1.
Miguel Batista pitched six serviceable innings to earn his 100th win, David Wright hit a two-run single in a four-run third against the bumbling Marlins and the New York Mets hung on to beat Florida 7-5 Thursday night.
