ST. Will Richardson Jersey . PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Solid starting pitching, timely hitting and some much-needed relief from a struggling bullpen.The last-place Tampa Bay Rays got all three for a change Monday and ended a four-game losing streak with a 4-2 victory over the reeling Los Angeles Angels.It feels good to get a win, manager Kevin Cash said. Kind of difficult to come by these days.Logan Morrison homered and drove in two runs for the Rays, who won for just the third time in 19 games. Matt Moore (5-5) allowed two runs and six hits over 6 2/3 innings, improving to 4-0 in his career against Los Angeles and handing the Angels their 12th loss in 14 games.Matt Moore set the tone. Hes on a really good run. Its great to see, Cash said after the left-hander won consecutive starts for the first time since September 2013.Tampa Bays beleaguered bullpen got the job done, with Erasmo Ramirez getting four outs before Dana Eveland and rookie Ryan Garton combined for a scoreless ninth.Garton got two outs for his first major league save.Obviously, the back end of the bullpen, were asking some guys we know are not accustomed to doing things like that at the major league level, Cash said.Hopefully Ryan Garton has got a smile from ear to ear and doesnt wipe it off all night, the manager added. I dont know if he envisioned closing out a ballgame today for us, but we felt he was a good option, especially with the fastball hes able to locate up in the zone.During the 18-game stretch leading into Monday, Rays relievers compiled a 9.29 ERA and allowed at least one run 16 times. Tampa Bay was outscored 20-4 in innings seven through nine during a four-game sweep Detroit completed on Sunday.It was great to get the call and be able to help the team out this time, Garton said. I felt good to be able to do my job.Morrison hit a solo homer off starter Nick Tropeano and gave the Rays the lead for good with an RBI single off Fernando Salas (3-6). Brad Miller also had a solo homer for the last-place Rays, who won for just the third time in 19 games.Jefry Marte homered off Moore before leaving in the sixth with a bruised left knee. The outfielder was hit by a pitch in the fourth but remained in the game long enough to go deep on the first pitch of the sixth to make it 2-all.Andrelton Simmons drove in the other run for Los Angeles with a fourth-inning double.Salas has taken the loss in four of his last eight appearances. The right-hander has a 9.72 ERA over his past 16 outings, compared to 2.01 through his first 22 appearances this year.Fernando just hasnt been as crisp. His command has been in the equation of why hes been struggling, Angels manager Mike Scioscia said. Hes a better pitcher than hes shown. Theres no doubt about that.Tropeano was recalled from Triple-A Salt Lake before the game to make his first major league start since May 29. The right-hander, who spent much of the past month on the disabled list because of shoulder tightness, allowed two runs and four hits in five innings, including solo homers to Miller in the third and Morrison in the fifth.The Rays snapped a 2-all tie in the sixth against Salas, with Morrison delivering a go-ahead single and Steven Souza Jr. doubling into the left-field corner to drive in Morrison from first base to make it 4-2.TRAINERS ROOMAngels: Scioscia said C Geovany Soto (right knee) could return during the four-game series with the Rays. Soto is on a rehab assignment with Triple-A Salt Lake.Rays: RHP Alex Cobb (Tommy John surgery) will start a rehab assignment with Class A Charlotte on Wednesday. . Tampa Bay closer Alex Colome (right biceps tendinitis) felt fine after a bullpen session Sunday and didnt rule out being ready to return this week.COMING AND GOINGAngels: To make room for Tropeano, LHP Jose Alvarez was optioned to Salt Lake to find his release point, according to Scioscia. The move leaves Los Angeles without a left-hander in the bullpen. In a perfect world you have one or two lefties that can go there and match up, but were not there right now, Scioscia said.Rays: CF Desmond Jennings was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a strained left hamstring. RHP Tyler Sturdevant was recalled from Triple-A Durham to help a struggling bullpen.UP NEXTAngels: RHP Tim Lincecum (1-2, 6.75 ERA) makes his second career start against Tampa Bay, which hasnt faced him since Aug. 3, 2013, when he was with San Francisco.Rays: RHP Jake Odorizzi (3-3, 3.91 ERA) tries to end a stretch of nine consecutive home starts without a win, the longest streak by a Rays pitcher to start a season since Scott Kazmir went 10 in 2007. Odorizzi is 0-2 with a 5.14 ERA in three career starts against the Angels.Cheap Nike Jaguars Jerseys . In the lead up - which seemed to begin the moment Mike Geiger blew the whistle in Houston last Thursday night - the Impact rumour mill went into overdrive. The speculation went into meltdown mode, of the golden nugget variety. Jacksonville Jaguars Jerseys For Sale . Andreas Johnson had a goal and two assists while Jacob de la Rose also scored for Sweden (2-0-0). Esa Lindell and Rasmus Ristolainen replied for Finland (1-1-0) Lindell opened the scoring for Finland just 41 seconds into the game, but the hosts quickly regained their composure and tied the score less than four minutes later on Wennbergs first of the game. http:///...-logan-cooke-jersey/ .C. - The Carolina Hurricanes have placed backup goalie Anton Khudobin on injured reserve with an unspecified lower-body injury. CLEVELAND -- They dont have a true superstar, an embarrassment of All-Stars or a celebrity following. Thats the NBA champion Cavaliers, who play next door.The Indians, though, have depth, chemistry, one of baseballs best managers and quite possibly the most dominant bullpen weapon in the game.Andrew Miller has Cleveland two wins from the World Series -- and Toronto batters flailing.Josh Tomlin baffled Blue Jays batters for nearly six innings and Miller, acquired just ahead of the trade deadline for exactly these pressure-packed October moments, blew them away as Cleveland edged Toronto 2-1 on Saturday to take 2-0 lead in the AL Championship Series.Carlos Santana homered off 20-game winner J.A. Happ, and Francisco Lindor had an RBI single for the Indians. They won the second straight tense game in this series and have won five straight postseason games for the first time in their 116-year history.An afterthought in August, Tomlin has emerged as an unlikely October star for the Indians. He allowed one run and three hits in 5 2/3 innings for his second win of the postseason -- he won the Game 3 Division Series clincher in Boston -- before Cleveland manager Terry Francona handed the ball to the magnificent Miller, who is making the Blue Jays look like Little Leaguers.The lanky left-hander struck out the side in the seventh, two more in the eighth and has 10 strikeouts in 3 2/3 innings in the series. He has not allowed a run in 16 career postseason innings.Hes one of the best Ive ever seen, said closer Cody Allen , who worked the ninth to close the three-hitter for his second straight save. He goes out there for two innings, shuts them down and gets a lot of swings and misses. Whenever you get to come in behind a guy like that, youre in a pretty good spot.So are the Indians, who had never been up 2-0 in four previous ALCS trips.Miller has been the difference so far, blowing through the Blue Jays. Before getting a groundout in the eighth, he struck out seven straight over two games.Theres a reason we gave up what we did for him, said Francona, referring to the four top prospects the Indians sent to the Yankees in July. We thought that he could be a guy that we could leverage in situations like we have. And it would make our bullpen that much better and give us a chance to keep playing. And thats exactly what hes doing.After bludgeoning Texas in the ALDS by hitting eight homers and scoring 22 runs, Toronto has one run and 10 hits -- eight singles and a pair of doubles -- in two games against the Indians, dropping to 0-2 in the ALCS for the second straight year.Bautista is 0 for 6 in the series with five strikeouts and in a 0-for-14 postseason tailspin.

History shows we can hit the ball. Were going to have the opportunity to do that at home.The series heads north to Torontos raucous Rogers Centre for Game 3 on Monday, with Clevelands Trevor Bauer slated to face Marcus Stroman.Tomlin originally was scheduled to pitch Game 3, but he was pushed up after Bauer cut his right pinkie while repairing one of the drones he enjoys flying as a hobby. The 31-year-old Tomlin pitched himself out of the rotation by going 0-5 with a 11.48 ERA in August, but injuries to Carlos Carrasco and Danny Salazar gave him another chance and hes made the most of it.Tomlin relied on his curveball to keep the Blue Jays guessing.I needed to establish I could throw it for a strike early on, and then it was a pretty good pitch, he said.Millers slider buckled the Blue Jays and delighted his teammates.I dont even know how to say it, Indians second baseman Jason Kipnis said. Its fun to watch. Ive faced that before, which is not fun to watch.POST(SEASON)POURRI: Indians RF Lonnie Chisenhall extended his postseason hitting streak to six games, equaling Jhonny Peraltas team record to begin a career. .

I think that ship has sailed, I had my chance, said Miller, who went 10-1 with a 1.45 ERA in 70 regular-season outings this season. The bullpen is a lot of fun. I like coming to the ballpark every day knowing I have a chance to pitch.CHEERLEADERFor the second time in the postseason, LeBron James and most of his Cavs teammates showed up to root on the Indians.TRAINERS ROOMBlue Jays 2B Devon Travis is done for the postseason with a right knee injury he aggravated during Game 1.
