Moore's wildness makes for rare feat

NEW YORK -- Matt Moore mastered the concept of "effectively wild" on Tuesday night, when he became just the second pitcher since 1916 to walk six, throw three wild pitches and not allow a run in five innings.

The only other time it happened was on May 2, 1992, when the Rangers' Roger Pavlik beat the White Sox, 4-2. Pavlik worked six innings, walked six and allowed one hit before leaving with the score 1-0.

In addition, the Rays' 7-0 win on Tuesday night was their 16th shutout of the season, making them the first team since the 1989-90 Athletics to record at least 15 shutouts in consecutive years.
