Relievers Mike Adams and Joe Nathan preserved the blanking, pitching a scoreless inning apiece with Nathan getting his 27th save of the season.

Second baseman Ian Kinsler provided the game's lone run on a fourth-inning home run to left field. It was his 16th of the year, coming off of Rays starting pitcher James Shields, who took the loss after surrendering only three hits and striking out eight in seven innings of work. His record fell to 12-8.

Tampa Bay scattered seven hits, getting runners to second and third on two separate occasions yet failing to drive one home.
