ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) Jake Odorizzi allowed one run over seven innings as the Tampa Bay Rays beat Jose Fernandez and the Miami Marlins 4-1 on Thursday night to complete a three-game sweep.
Odorizzi (9-9) scattered four hits, walked two and struck out seven.
Fernandez (6-1) gave up two runs, 11 hits and had nine strikeouts over six innings in his 11th start after returning from elbow ligament replacement surgery. A 2011 graduate of Alonso High School in nearby Tampa, Fernandez allowed seven runs in 3 1-3 innings during his only other start at Tropicana Field on May 27, 2013.
The Rays said it was the first regular-season game ever between AL and NL teams during October. There have been 617 World Series games played in the month. Houston and Arizona will start a three-game interleague series Friday night.
