ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (620 WDAE) -- The Tampa Bay Rays just can't seem to get their hitting in order.
Jake Odorizzi only allowed a single run, but Rays hitters could not take advantage of any of the seven hits they got off Adam Wainwright, as Tampa Bay fell to St. Louis 1-0 Tuesday.
The only run of the contest came with two out in the sixth inning, when Odorizzi hung a 1-2 changeup and Matt Holliday deposited it in to the seats in left-center for a solo home run.
Odorizzi allowed just two other hits and a walk while striking out five while throwing in to the eighth inning.
Meanwhile Adam Wainwright scattered a pair of walks and seven hits in as many innings, but did not allow a Tampa Bay runner to come across.
The Rays left a runner in scoring position in the first, two more in the fourth, and the bases loaded in the eighth.
Tampa Bay's homestand ends Wednesday with the finale of this two game series. Erik Bedard (3-4, 3.61 ERA) takes on Michael Wacha (4-4, 2.61 ERA). First pitch is scheduled for 7:10, with coverage on WDAE starting at 6:00 with the Suncoast Hyundai Dealers Inside Pitch.
NOTES: Tampa Bay's scoreless innings streak currently stands at 28 and counting, surpassing the club-record set by the 2002 Devil Rays, a team that lost 106 games.
