Rays 3, Cardinals 0

ST. LOUIS -- Right-hander Alex Cobb tossed seven shutout innings and knocked in the only run Tampa Bay needed as it swept a two-game interleague series from St. Louis.

Cobb (6-6) allowed five hits and whiffed 10 with no walks as Tampa Bay swept a two-city road trip for the first time in its 17 seasons. The Rays won three games in Minnesota to start the trip.

It was the eighth consecutive road victory for Tampa Bay, which also scored on Evan Longoria's sacrifice fly in the seventh and Brandon Guyer's single in the ninth.
