ST. PETERSBURG, Fla., Aug. 3 (UPI) -- Paul Wilson allowed two runs and five hits in eight innings Saturday night to help carry the Tampa Bay Devil Rays to a 6-2 victory over the Chicago White Sox.

Prior to Saturday night, Wilson (4-7) had three wins against the Baltimore Orioles but was winless in seven decisions against everyone else. The righthander has won his last two starts after losing four in a row.

Wilson was aided by a five-run third inning. Felix Escalona plated rookie Carl Crawford with a groundout, Steve Cox had a run-scoring single and Jared Sandberg an RBI double before Jason Conti capped the outburst with a two-run base hit.

Chicago stater Todd Ritchie (5-15) allowed six runs and 10 hits in six innings and had his losing streak extended to five games.

The righthander is 1-10 on the road this season.
