New York starter Kei Igawa gave up two runs on seven hits over five innings. He walked three and struck out six. Luis Vizcaino (7-2) grabbed the win by pitching a scoreless sixth.

Jason Hammel lasted just four innings, giving up two runs on three hits. Jae Kuk Ryu (1-2) took the loss, giving up five runs on four hits in only 1 2/3 innings.

B.J. Upton, Ty Wigginton and Raul Casanova all hit solo home runs for the Devil Rays, who have lost two of their last three games.
