Rays' offense falters
Photos
Athletics 8, Rays 1
Andy Sonnanstine struck out five in seven innings of work on Tuesday night. (AP)
Tampa struck first in the third inning with a sac fly from Carlos Pena, but that was all the Rays could muster offensively. Andy Sonnanstine pitched well enough for the win, giving up three runs on five hits in seven innings, but he did not get the offensive support he needed.
