MIAMI (AP) -- Henderson Alvarez needed only 88 pitches to toss an eight-hitter for his third shutout this year, and the Miami Marlins beat Tampa Bay 1-0 Tuesday, sending the reeling Rays home after a winless eight-game trip.

The only run scored when Christian Yelich walked on a full-count pitch with two out and the bases loaded in the fifth inning.

Alvarez (3-3) didn't allow a run for the third start in a row, a stretch covering 19 innings. He retired the last five batters to close out the win in 2 hours, 10 minutes.
