Smyly gets 1st win for Rays, 7-0 over Rangers

Drew Smyly allowed three hits in his first win since the David Price trade, Matt Joyce had a two-run single and the Tampa Bay Rays beat the Texas Rangers 7-0 on Monday night.

Smyly struck out nine in a career-high 7 2-3 innings to beat the Rangers for the second time this season. The left-hander hasn't allowed Texas an earned run in three appearances, including a relief outing when he was still with Detroit.

Smyly (7-10), who lost at Oakland five days after the Price deal at the non-waiver trading deadline July 31, struck out the final batter he faced, Shin-Soo Choo, for the second out with runners at second and third in the eighth.

Colby Lewis (8-9) couldn't build on the momentum of his second career shutout, giving up five runs - two earned - in five innings.
