Rays Win at Houston, 5-4
Tampa Bay beat Houston at Minute Maid Park, eking out a 5-4 win. The win was due in large part to pitcher Mason Thompson, who earned player of the game honors. Thompson, the winner, moves to 1-3. He threw 7 innings of 4-hit ball, while fanning 5 and giving up 1 walk. Tampa Bay has run its win streak to 4 in a row.

The Rays got a big at-bat from right fielder Pat Cummins. For the game, Cummins was 1-4 with a home run. He drove in 2 runs and scored once. In the top of the first, with a runner on 2nd, he stroked a 2-run home run. His 27th home run of the season gave Tampa Bay a 2-0 lead.

"Nice to see our side come away with the win," Cummins said after the game.
