Archer, Rays muzzle Marlins

Miami, FL ( – Chris Archer gave up one hit over seven
scoreless innings as Tampa Bay silenced Miami by a 2-0 count in the second
edition of a three-game interleague series.

Archer (1-1) struck out five and walked one during his efficient 83-pitch
outing. Kevin Jepsen struck out two in a scoreless eighth and Brad Boxberger
finished off the shutout with a quiet ninth to earn his second save.

Tim Beckham homered and Evan Longoria drove in the other run for the Rays, who
avenged a 10-9 extra-inning loss in Friday’s series opener.

Jarred Cosart (0-1) was the hard-luck loser after giving up a run on three
hits with three walks over six full frames for the Marlins, who fell to 1-4 on
the season.
