Cody Allen pitched a 1-2-3 ninth for his 20th save of the season.

Rays pitcher Chris Archer (8-7) struck out eight batters but continues to build up a pitch count quickly, lasting only 5 1/3 innings before leaving with 111 pitches. He has just one win in six starts since he was selected to the All-Star Game, and the Rays are 2-4 in those starts.

"Frustrated about the loss more than anything," said Archer, who had gone at least six innings in his previous 15 starts. "All we can do is our best. We feel like we're doing that.

The Rays failed to score a run for the fifth time on the nine-game homestand with Clevinger in control early.
