ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) – Matt Moore won his sixth straight decision to start the season, Evan Longoria drove in three runs, and the Tampa Bay Rays beat the Toronto Blue Jays 10-4 on Wednesday night.
Moore (6-0) overcame control issues, allowing two runs, six hits and four walks in five innings. The left-hander threw 104 pitches, including 56 strikes, during his seventh start of the year.
Longoria had a two-run homer and RBI single, and Kelly Johnson had three hits, including a two-run shot.
Struggling Blue Jays starter Ricky Romero (0-2) gave up three run-scoring singles and got just one out during his second outing this year. The left-hander lost his rotation spot after a poor spring training and remained in Florida when the season began to work on mechanics.
