ANAHEIM, Calif., Sept. 5 (UPI) -- Wil Myers accounted for all the Tampa Bay scoring with two home runs Wednesday, bringing the Rays a 3-1 victory over the Los Angeles Angels.

Tampa Bay remained 2 1/2 games in front of the New York Yankees for the second American League wild card berth. Cleveland finished the night 3 1/2 games back.

Jeremy Hellickson threw 5 1/3 shutout innings and four relievers combined to hold the Angels to a run on three hits.

Myers hit a solo homer in the second and launched another blast in the seventh after Desmond Jennings had drawn a one-out walk.

The Angels' only run came on a seventh-inning home run by Chris Iannetta.

Hellickson (11-8) allowed four hits and walked two to get the win. Fernando Rodney struck out two during a perfect ninth and collected his 32nd save.

Jered Weaver (9-8) allowed both of Myers' home runs and four other hits over seven innings to take the loss.
