ARLINGTON (AP) — Matt Moore and four Rays relievers combined on a five-hitter and Tampa Bay beat Texas 2-0 Wednesday in the coldest day game ever at Rangers Ballpark.

It was only 39 degrees when the game started after a rain delay of 1 hour, 29 minutes. That was 40 degrees colder than Tuesday night.

Evan Longoria had a sacrifice fly for the Rays, who snapped a three-game losing streak. Their other run came on a grounder after Derek Holland (0-1) walked the bases loaded, his only three walks in his eight innings.

Moore (2-0) limited Texas to a single and struck out five, but had six walks and threw 106 pitches to get into the sixth.
