Rays homer past White Sox in 5-2 win
(CHICAGO) – Austin Meadows, Brandon Lowe and Randy Arozarena homered, and the Tampa Bay Rays beat the host Chicago White Sox 5-2 on Monday night for their fourth straight win. Tampa Bay improved to 43-24, 1 1/2 games ahead of the White Sox for the best record in the majors. The Rays have won seven of eight. Tampa Bay starter Tyler Glasnow left after four innings with right elbow inflammation. The 6 foot 8 right-hander allowed two runs on three hits, walked one and struck out six, throwing 40 of 53 pitches for strikes. Glasnow sensed something wasn't right, but not terribly painful, in the elbow as he tossed his final pitches in the fourth. He told the coaching staff and was replaced by Ryan Thompson. Tim Anderson had two hits and Brian Goodwin added an RBI single for the White Sox, whose four-game winning streak ended. Four Tampa Bay relievers: Thompson, J.P. Feyereisen (3-2), Diego Castillo and Pete Fairbanks; followed with five scoreless innings of two-hit ball. Fairbanks pitched a perfect ninth for his third save. Lance Lynn (7-2) allowed three runs on six hits in six innings as he lost for the first time since April 15. Lynn allowed as many as three runs for only the second time in 12 starts.
