Karns takes shutout into 8th, Rays beat Rangers 8-2

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) - Nathan Karns took a shutout into the eighth inning, pinch hitter Brandon Guyer had a three-run homer and the Tampa Bay Rays beat the Texas Rangers 8-2 Friday night.

Texas had won four in a row.

Karns (2-1) allowed two hits through seven scoreless innings before Adam Rosales homered to lead off the eighth. Karns struck out a career-high nine.

Yovani Gallardo (2-5) lost his fourth straight start, giving up four runs and three hits in 5 1-3 innings.

Evan Longoria hit an RBI single that finished Gallardo in the sixth. Reliever Alex Claudio threw only one pitch in the game, and Guyer sent it into the left-field seats for the first pinch-hit homer of his career and a 5-0 lead.

Longoria was the designated hitter, one day after his streak of playing in 270 consecutive games ended due to flulike symptoms.
