Sale, Sox come up short in Tampa

By

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Matt Moore won his fourth consecutive start to help the Tampa Bay Rays beat All-Star selection Chris Sale and the White Sox 3-0 on Saturday night.

Moore (12-3), who could still become an All-Star as an injury replacement, gave up five hits, two walks and struck out six over 6 1-3 innings.

The Rays have won seven of eight, improving to a season-best eight games (48-40) over .500. Fernando Rodney, the third Tampa Bay reliever, pitched the ninth for his 19th save -- completing the six-hitter.

Sale (5-8) allowed three runs, six hits, one walk and had nine strikeouts in seven innings for the White Sox, who have lost eight of 10. The left-hander, despite giving up just 20 runs -- 17 earned -- over 49 1-3 innings, is 0-6 in his last seven starts.
