Rays Get One-Run Win at Houston
The Tampa Bay Rays did just enough to secure a 3-2 victory over the Houston Astros at Minute Maid Park. Nobody did more than pitcher Claude Wheeler, who captured player of the game honors. In 7 innings, Wheeler surrendered 6 hits, while striking out 10 and walking 1. He allowed 1 run. Juan Flores, credited with the save, is now 11 for 16 in save opportunities.

The Rays got a big at-bat from designated hitter Tim Davidson. For the game, Davidson went 2-4 with a double. He drove in 2 runs. In the top of the fourth, with runners on 2nd and 3rd, he stroked a 2-run double. His 10th double of the season gave Tampa Bay a 3-1 lead.

"It was a solid team effort and we'll try to keep this momentum going," Wheeler told reporters after the game.

The first-place Rays now have a 6-game winning streak.
