ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) - Roberto Hernandez pitched six effective innings Sunday for his first win since he was known as Fausto Carmon, and the Tampa Bay Rays complete a three-game sweep of the Oakland Athletics with an 8-1 victory.
Hernandez (1-3) allowed one run, three hits, three walks and had seven strikeouts in his first win since Sept. 20, 2011, while with Cleveland.
The 32-year old right-hander was arrested in January 2012 in the Dominican Republic on false identity charges - as Carmona. They were dropped after he completed a work program.
Oakland starter Tommy Milone (3-1) had his season-opening three-game winning streak end. The left-hander gave up six runs and eight hits over 6 2-3 innings.
