Tampa Bay Rays beat San Francisco Giants 4-3

San Francisco Giants starting pitcher surrendered three runs on four hits over 4 2/3 innings in a no-decision against the Rays.

He struck out three, walked four, allowed a two-run home run against Wil Myers in the first inning. Moscoso took the rotation spot of Barry Zito, who now pitches out of the bullpen.

Moscoso entered the game with a 4.19 ERA over 24 starts and 34 relief appearances at the major league level.

Myers walked twice and connected with a two run homer. He has hit safely in 14 of his last 15 games, reaching safely in every game he’s played since July 8th. Myers entered the game with a ridiculous .413/. 472/.739 over 46 second half at bats.

He’s hitting .329 with eight home runs and 30 RBI’s over his first 39 big league games with the Rays.

Fernando Rodney picked up the save, as he worked a perfect inning against the Giants. He struck out one in the 11 pitch outing. The right hander has given up a run in just one of his last 18 appearances for the Rays since June 15th, slashing his ERA from 5.40 to 3.74.

Roberto Hernandez picked up the win for the Rays.

Buster Posey hit an RBI single in the top of the first inning to give the Giants a 1-0 lead, until Myers came up to bat at the bottom half of the inning.

Brandon Crawford added a two run triple in the fourth for the Giants, as those two runs would be the last they would score in this game.
