Rays starter James Manias surrendered eight runs, two earned, in five innings.

The Rays scored in the fourth when rightfielder Rafael Guerrero singled in catcher Dan Donato, who led off with a single. The Rays' second run came in the fifth when first baseman Brian Becker's fly brought home centerfielder Alex Sanchez, who singled and advanced to third on a hit batter and a walk.
