LOS ANGELES (AP) — Brandon McCarthy was off to another superb start in his quip from Tommy John medicine until a Southern California feverishness wore him down in a fourth inning.

The Los Angeles Dodgers’ offense wilted even some-more conspicuously.

Matt Moore pitched four-hit round into a seventh inning, Evan Longoria strike a two-run homer and Tampa Bay won during Dodger Stadium for a initial time, 3-1 Wednesday.

McCarthy (2-1) lasted usually 4 innings in his initial detriment given Sept. 23, 2014, and his initial in a Dodgers uniform. He authorised 4 hits and 3 runs with 7 strikeouts in a shortest start of his differently clever comeback.

The Dodgers pulled McCarthy after 83 pitches, though a right-hander pronounced his remade arm wasn’t a reason.

“It was indeed kind of a physique letdown,” McCarthy said. “You can dope yourself for a while. ‘I can keep going, we can keep going.’ But eventually (the heat) sucks it out of you.”

After handling usually one singular in a initial 3 innings, a Rays jumped on McCarthy in a fourth. Brad Miller chipped a leadoff double down a right-field line and scored on Longoria’s 23rd homer of a season, his initial during Dodger Stadium, on a full-count violation round down a middle.

“This is a initial time Brandon has thrown on unchanging rest,” Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said. “I usually wanted to be aware of him entrance behind (for) his fifth inning. He was right there during that (pitch) array where we felt was good. Overall, we suspicion he threw a round well, though Longoria got a good pitch on it.”

The Dodgers’ three-game winning strain finished with a scanty descent effort. Howie Kendrick had dual of Los Angeles’ 5 hits, all singles.

Much of that was due to Moore (7-7). The left-hander achieved superbly opposite a Dodgers, who are suspicion to be meddlesome in several Tampa Bay starters with a trade deadline looming.

Moore looked prepared for a streamer race, distinguished out 5 and usually permitting an unmerited run.

“I’m here (with a Rays), and it doesn’t feel like I’m going anywhere,” pronounced Moore, who also walked four.

Luke Maile had an RBI double in a three-run fourth inning as Tampa Bay wrapped adult a nine-game West Coast highway pitch by gnawing a four-game skid.

The Rays (39-61) still have a majors’ third-worst record and a team’s misfortune symbol after 100 games given 2007.

“Since a All-Star break, we’ve played a lot closer to a loyal colors of a team,” Moore said.

The Rays were swept in a three-game array during Chavez Ravine in 2013, a usually other time they’ve visited a Dodgers’ sacred home turf.


The Dodgers had an early lead interjection to a initial stolen bottom in a 537-game big-league career of catcher A.J. Ellis.

Joc Pederson walked in a second inning and modernized to third on Ellis’ single. When Ellis suddenly pennyless for second moments later, Maile attempted to chuck him out — though a round got divided for an error, permitting Pederson to score.

Clayton Kershaw apparently done certain a Dodgers grabbed second bottom as a commemoration for Ellis, who has spent his whole nine-year career with Los Angeles.

Last winter, Roberts betrothed an costly cooking to Ellis if he stole a base.

“I consider he was flattering pleased,” Roberts said. “Big beef dinner.”


Logan Morrison finished a seventh inning in fantastic fashion, acrobatics into a stands to squeeze a tainted cocktail by Kendrick.

“I suspicion it was going to go (out of play),” Kendrick said. “Great play by him.”

Morrison dislodged a vast protecting pad from a vituperation down a first-base line, though hung on to a round while descending back onto a concrete.

“With a high sky and a sun, we was usually perplexing to keep my eye on a ball,” Morrison said. “I didn’t know where a wall was. we knew it strike my glove, so we was usually anticipating it stayed in.”


Rays: Morrison was pulled from a lineup shortly after his catch, though manager Kevin Cash pronounced it was particularly a tactical decision.

Dodgers: OF Yasiel Puig sat out again with an harmed right hamstring. He hasn’t played given final Friday, though isn’t on a infirm list.


Rays: Jake Odorizzi (4-5, 4.10 ERA) is entrance off a longest scoreless start of his career when Tampa Bay hosts a New York Yankees on Friday.

Dodgers: After a day off, Kenta Maeda (9-7, 3.25 ERA) takes a pile Friday for a opener of a weekend home array opposite Arizona.
