ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — Backup catcher Francisco Mejía had a three-run double, five Tampa Bay pitchers combined on a seven-hitter, and the Rays beat the Chicago White Sox 9-0 in a matchup of AL division leaders.
Austin Meadows had three RBIs for Tampa Bay, which took the final two games of the series after the White Sox won the opener 7-5 in 11 innings.
The Rays outscored Chicago 17-4 in the two wins.
Tampa Bay starter Chris Archer departed with left hip tightness after two innings. It was Archer’s first start since leaving a game on April 10 against the New York Yankees with right forearm tightness.
