St. Petersburg, FL (Sports Network) - Jason Vargas turned in a stellar
performance with seven scoreless innings and the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim
posted a series victory over the Tampa Bay Rays with Thursday's 2-0 win.
Vargas (8-5) didn't give the Rays much to work with, as the left-hander struck
out seven and scattered just two hits and three walks in leading the Angels to
their second victory in this three-game set at Tropicana Field.
Tampa Bay had runners on second and third with one out in the ninth, but
Angels closer Ernesto Frieri came out of the jam unscathed and posted his 28th
save. The Rays were 0-for-8 with runners in scoring position on the afternoon.
Luis Jimenez, recalled from Triple-A Salt Lake prior to the game, and Kole
Calhoun each drove in a run to account for the game's only offense.
