ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — Madison Bumgarner struck out 11 in seven innings, Brandon Crawford hit a two-run homer and the San Francisco Giants beat the Tampa Bay Rays 4-1 on Friday night.

This was the first time since 2004 that the teams met. The last-place Giants won their third in a row overall.

Tampa Bay has lost two in a row, including its first game in August. The Rays went 21-5 in July.

Bumgarner (11-7) gave up one run, working around seven hits and three walks. Sergio Romo got two outs for his 26th save.

Brandon Belt had three hits, including a solo homer, for the Giants.

Chris Archer (6-4) allowed four runs and seven hits in seven innings. He had permitted just two runs — one earned — over 31 innings in winning his previous four starts.
