ANAHEIM, Calif. Julius Peppers Youth Jersey . -- Yunel Escobar homered off Jered Weaver, and James Loney and Evan Longoria had RBI singles to lead the Tampa Bay Rays to a 3-0 victory over the Los Angeles Angels on Friday night. Chris Archer (3-2) allowed two hits over 5 2-3 innings and won for the first time in his last five starts, striking out five and walking five. The right-hander came in with a 6.97 ERA since his 16-1 victory over the Yankees on April 19 at St. Petersburg. Jake McGee, who has stranded all 13 baserunners hes inherited, started the seventh inning fresh after Juan Carlos Oviedo got the last out in the sixth. McGee gave up a single by Erick Aybar and a walk to Mike Trout, his third of the game. But Albert Pujols, who stranded six runners on the night, flied out to right field. Joel Peralta pitched a scoreless eighth and Grant Balfour pitched a perfect ninth for his eighth save. Weaver (4-3) allowed two runs and three hits over seven innings with five strikeouts and three walks. The Angels ace was 4-0 with a 1.71 ERA in his previous five starts, including a 9-3 decision last Sunday in which he asked to be taken out of a game for the first time in his nine-year career because of a problem with his command -- after throwing 102 pitches in 6 1-3 innings and getting staked to a 7-1 lead. Archer matched zeroes with the three-time All-Star through the first four innings, and each team had one hit -- the Angels a two-out single by Pujols in the first, and the Rays a one-out single by Escobar in the third. Efren Navarros two-out single in the sixth was the only other hit Archer allowed. Escobar, who came in with four hits in eight career at-bats against Weaver, opened the scoring in the fifth when he drove an 0-2 pitch to left-centre for his third homer of the season. It was only the third allowed by Weaver in seven starts since April 6 at Houston when the Astros went deep four times against him in 7-4 win. Loney added a run-scoring single over the head of right fielder Collin Cowgill in the seventh for his team-leading 25th RBI, after Longoria drew a leadoff walk and got his first stolen base of the season -- matching his total in 160 games last year. The Rays tacked on another run in the eighth with two walks and Longorias RBI single against Michael Kohn, who had held opponents to just one unearned run in 17 1-3 innings over his previous 17 appearances. Archer retired his first two batters in the fifth before walking John McDonald, Erick Aybar and Trout -- whose walkoff three-run homer against Brad Boxberger in the ninth inning Thursday gave the Angels a 6-5 win. But Pujols grounded to third for a force on Aybar, making the two-time NL MVP 0 for 6 this season in bases-loaded situations and 3 for 22 since signing a 10-year, $240 million contract with the club in December 2011. NOTES: Weaver intentionally walked Escobar in the seventh, the right-handers first intentional pass since Sept. 4, 2009, at Kansas City (Mark Teahen). ...

Obviously, Joey in the middle with that big frame and those skills is a big part of it. Nick and I just try to find space out there.Marko Dano added his first NHL goal and also had an assist for the Blue Jackets, who are 2-0 for the first time in five years. The game was played before a loud, sellout crowd of 18,922.That was awesome, starting with the red-carpet entrance and (there being) so many people out there, said the 19-year-old Slovakian, the 27th overall pick in the 2013 draft. That was a special moment for me, my dad watching the game from the stands. Im really happy he could see the moment when I scored my first goal.Artem Anisimov, like Atkinson, scored for the second game in a row. Fedor Tyutin, a former Ranger, had a +5 plus/minus rating to set a franchise record.Johansen, who ended his lengthy contract holdout and didnt practice until the day before the season began on Thursday, had two assists to give him three total. Scott Hartnell also had two helpers.Former Columbus captain Rick Nash picked up his third goal and Lee Stempniak also scored for the Rangers, who opened the season by splitting two road games.Anthony Duclair had two assists, also his first career NHL points, for the Rangers.With Columbus up 3-1 through two periods, Dano jammed in a rebound of Dalton Prouts shot from the point with just over 6 minutes remaining.Almost immediately, Nash scored his third goal in two games while the crowd booed loudly.Atkinson then closed the scoring with an empty-netter.At the start of the game, the energy was great, Columbus coach Todd Richards said of the raucous turnout. Clay Matthews Youth Jersey. We did things in the game that will allow us to have success.The capacity crowd had a lot to cheer. Anisimov arrived late to the play but stepped into a one-timer from just outside the left dot to beat backup goalie Cam Talbot 6:24 in.

He pointed and smiled to his father during the goal celebration.Folignos second effort made it 2-0.He wheeled from the right circle into the slot and put a shot on goal that Talbot blocked. But the rebound bounced back to Foligno, who was on all fours as he shoved it into the net.There were a lot of 50-50 pucks that they got to, Rangers coach Alain Vigneault said. Was that because they were quicker than we were? Or that they wanted it more?Stempniak cut the lead in half at 5:43 of the second with a hard wrister from the right circle.But the Blue Jackets boosted the lead back to two goals through the second when Johansen, who signed a three-year, $12-million deal on Monday, whipped a shot on net off a loose puck. Foligno got a stick on it to send it to Atkinson at the doorstep, who tapped it in midway through the period.We were chasing, said New York defenceman Mark Staal. We couldnt get the puck back and when we did we just gave it back to them.Sergei Bobrovsky had 24 saves for the Blue Jackets while Talbot made 19 stops in relief of Henrik Lundqvist for the Rangers.Notes: Nash had tussled with fan favourite Bobrovsky and Matt Calvert in New Yorks 3-1 win the last time the teams met in Nationwide Arena last March. ...
