Beavan goes 8 innings, Mariners beat Rays 2-1

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) - Blake Beavan scattered four hits over eight innings and the Seattle Mariners beat the Tampa Bay Rays 2-1 on Sunday.

 

Jesus Montero and Brendan Ryan each had an RBI double for the Mariners, who took two of three from the Rays to finish a 5-2 road trip.

 

Beavan (5-6) struck out five and walked none, outpitching Matt Moore in a tight duel. Tom Wilhelmsen worked a scoreless ninth for his 10th save, completing the five-hitter.

 

Matt Joyce hit a two-out double off Wilhelmsen, who then walked Jeff Keppinger. Pinch-hitter Hideki Matsui, mired in an 0-for-16 skid, ended the game on a first-pitch popup to shortstop.
