Alex Cobb produced a fine individual display as the Tampa Bay Rays claimed a 3-0 win over St Louis Cardinals.

Cobb tossed seven shutout innings and added a crucial run for the Rays, who swept a two-city road trip for the first time in 17 seasons.

During a miserly performance, Cobb allowed five hits and struck out 10 with no walks as Tampa picked up an eighth straight away win, moving them within 4 1/2 games of the Seattle Mariners for the American League's second wild-card spot.

In Milwaukee, Mark Reynolds hit two home runs during the Brewers’ 5-1 win over Cincinnati Reds.

Reynolds' two home runs came as part of a 3-for-4 day and the first baseman was one of three Brewers with multiple hits.

Center fielder Carlos Gomez picked up a pair and scored, and catcher Jonathan Lucroy recorded his second consecutive multi-hit game, singling his first two times up.

Kyle Lohse (11-4) matched Wily Peralta for the team lead with 11 victories by holding the Reds to a run on four hits with three strikeouts.
