Tampa Bay starter Claude Wheeler had a strong outing against the Los Angeles (A) Angels at Angel Stadium of Anaheim. The right-hander was a big part of his team's 3-1 win. Sergio Cruz, summoned from the bullpen, notched his 13th save. Tampa Bay leads the American League Eastern Division by 7˝ games.

The Rays got a big at-bat from left fielder Chris Giles. For the game, Giles went 1 for 3 with a home run, while adding 3 RBI and scoring once. In the top of the fifth, with runners on 2nd and 3rd, he stroked a 3-run home run. His 8th home run of the season gave Tampa Bay a 3-1 lead.

"It was a good effort all around," said Wheeler.
