Recap


Rays 11, Marlins 0: Matt Moore combined with two relievers on a one-hitter and Desmond Jennings tied a career high with four RBIs as host Tampa Bay extended its winning streak against Miami to eight games.

Carlos Pena walked and scored four times, Will Rhymes hit a pair of RBI singles and Ben Zobrist homered for the Rays, who snapped a three-game losing streak and improved to 2-5 at home in interleague play.

Moore (4-5) walked three and struck out eight over seven innings while allowing just a one-out single by Donovan Solano in the first en route to his third straight win. The left-hander, who will celebrate his 23rd birthday on Monday, has yielded three earned runs or less in 10 of his 13 starts this season.

Burke Badenhop and Brandon Gomes each tossed a hitless frame, with Gomes striking out three in the ninth. The trio of Tampa Bay pitchers combined for 12 strikeouts as Miami lost for the ninth time in 10 games.

Jennings hit an RBI single during a three-run second inning and highlighted a five-run seventh with a three-run double. It was the second four-RBI performance of Jennings' career and first since July 28, 2011 at Oakland.

Rhymes delivered his run-scoring singles in the third and fifth innings while Zobrist belted a solo homer in the fifth.

Miami starter Carlos Zambrano (4-5) lasted two-plus innings, surrendering four runs and three hits while walking six in falling to 0-3 lifetime against the Rays. It was the shortest outing of the season for Zambrano, who worked only 2 1/3 frames versus Tampa Bay last Saturday.

GAME NOTEBOOK: Marlins 3B Hanley Ramirez was scratched from the starting lineup after being hit in the nose by a ball during batting practice. ... Tampa Bay 3B Evan Longoria will be re-evaluated on Tuesday. Longoria, who has not played since April 30 due to a partially torn left hamstring, is slated to begin his rehab assignment with Triple-A Durham on Saturday. ... The Rays recalled RHP Gomes from Durham to fill the roster opening created when DH Luke Scott was placed on the disabled list Thursday. Gomes went 1-1 with a 7.71 ERA in five relief appearances earlier this season.
