4 relievers allow 1 hit in 4 1-3 scoreless innings, Rays beat Giants 4-3

Wil Myers homered and four relievers allowed one hit over 4 1-3 scoreless innings to help the Tampa Bay Rays beat the San Francisco Giants 4-3 on Sunday.

Alex Torres (4-0) started the bullpen parade by replacing Roberto Hernandez with two outs in the fifth and struck out two over 1 1-3 innings. Jake McGee worked a perfect seventh and Joel Peralta left Hunter Pence stranded at second after a two-out double in the eighth before Fernando Rodney pitched the ninth for his 27th save.

Tampa Bay took a 4-3 lead in the sixth on Fuld's hit against Jose Mijares (0-3) to help the Rays win for the 25th in 31 games.

Myers homered for the Rays, who took 2 of 3 from the defending World Series champion Giants and improved to 11-0-2 in their last 13 series.
