BALTIMORE, May 19 (UPI) -- Matt Moore improved to 8-0 with seven innings of one-run ball Sunday and the Tampa Bay Rays beat Baltimore 3-1 to complete a three-game sweep.

Moore surrendered five hits, walked only one and struck out three en route to his major-best eighth victory. The left-hander lowered his ERA to 2.29 with the 106-pitch gem.

Joel Peralta turned in a spotless eighth and Fernando Rodney racked up his eighth save for Tampa Bay, which recorded its ninth win in 11 games overall.

Matt Joyce and Luke Scott each socked a solo homer in the victory.

Orioles starter Chris Tillman (3-2) allowed three runs on five hits in a six-inning effort.

Adam Jones supplied the only RBI for Baltimore, which has dropped five straight.
