Garza wins duel
Photos
Rays 3, Blue Jays 0
Matt Garza pitched his first Major League shutout on Tuesday. (AP)
Matt Garza improved his all-time record vs. AL East teams to 11-4, as the Rays righty shut out the Jays. Garza was sharp all night long and needed just an Eric Hinske homer in the third inning for support. Evan Longoria added insurance with a two-run triple in the eighth to help beat All-Star Roy Halladay.
