|Davis Allows 1 Run in 7 Innings of Rays' Win
|ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) -- Wade Davis pitched seven solid innings, John Jaso homered and the Tampa Bay Rays won for the eighth time in nine games with a 4-1 victory over the Chicago White Sox Wednesday night.
Davis (2-2) allowed one run and six hits. Jaso put the Rays ahead 2-0 on a two-run homer off Phil Humber (1-2) during the second.
Tampa Bay (9-9) became just the second team since 1900, joining the 1991 Seattle Mariners, to reach .500 in April after starting the season with a six-game losing streak.
Carlos Quentin homered for the White Sox, who have lost seven in a row. Chicago has been outscored 11-2 through three games of a four-game series against Tampa Bay.
