MARK DIDTLER, Associated Press

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — Jason Vargas allowed two hits over seven innings and the Los Angeles Angels held off the Tampa Bay Rays 2-0 on Thursday.

The Rays have lost four of five. The Angels have won five of six.

Vargas (8-5) gave up a leadoff double to Desmond Jennings in the first and Ben Zobrist’s sixth-inning infield single. The left-hander struck out seven and walked three.

Rays rookie Wil Myers drew a leadoff walk from Ernesto Frieri in the ninth and went to third on Yunel Escobar’s one-out double. Frieri rebounded to earn his 28th save, retiring Kelly Johnson on a foul pop and getting pitch-hitter David DeJesus on a flyball.

Jake Odorizzi (0-1) gave up one run and four hits in five innings.
