"You'd like to take advantage of them," Showalter said of the quality starts. "We had three hits tonight. And try to give their guy credit. It's not the first time he's pitched real well at this level. It's one of the things they've been pretty consistent with starting-wise. You're going to face good pitchers up here. We've done a good job of scratching across some and have pitching make it matter."
The Rays (50-47) didn't get their first hit off Chen until Keppinger's single with two outs in the fourth and he allowed just two baserunners through his first four innings of work.
