ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — Mike Zunino and Brett Phillips homered as the AL East-leading Tampa Bay Rays won for the 15th time in 16 games, 6-2 over the Philadelphia Phillies.

The Rays have won four consecutive games, including a two-game sweep over Philadelphia, after Kansas City stopped their 11-game winning streak on Tuesday.

Philadelphia, losers of eight of 11, got a run-scoring double from Brad Miller.

Zunino hit his 12th homer in the second, and Phillips added a solo shot during Tampa Bay’s two-run fifth.
