|Matt Moore improves to 7-0|
|by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com|
(5/14/13) Rays starter Matt Moore wasn't at his best on Tuesday night at home against Boston. He still managed to earn his seventh victory of the season compared to zero defeats.
Moore mowed down eight Boston batters over six innings and left with a 5-3 lead to improve to 7-0 with a 2.44 ERA. He gave up three earned runs on just three hits and two walks with the eight Ks over his six frames and 100 pitches. Moore was only hurt by a David Ortiz three-run homer in the first inning.
The 23-year-old Tampa burgeoning ace allowed more than two earned runs Tuesday for just the second time all season. He's been terrific and will look to keep it up in his next start scheduled for Sunday at Baltimore.
|Matt Moore improves to 6-0|

(5/8/13) Rays starter Matt Moore had another solid outing Wednesday at home against the Blue Jays. With Ricky Romero lasting just one out before being pulled, Moore cruised to victory.
Moore, who is 6-0 on the year, gave up just two earned runs on six hits and four walks with 104 pitches thrown over five innings. He struck out two and was hurt by an Edwin Encarnacion two-run homer in the first inning. Otherwise, Moore was not scored upon.
Owner of a 2.14 ERA on the year after seven starts, Moore rebounded from failing to win his last time out in Colorado. He's recorded winning decisions in six of his seven starts on the year with 43 Ks over 42 innings. He's been sensational and he'll look to continue that trend Tuesday against Boston.
|Matt Moore knocked around in no-decision|
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
(5/4/13) Rays starter Matt Moore was knocked around but did not factor into the decision during Friday's contest against the Rockies at Coors Field.
Moore, who made his sixth start of the season, surrendered a two-run home run to Michael Cuddyer in the opening frame and a solo shot to Josh Rutledge in the second. The left-hander was charged with four runs and seven hits in five innings of work in a 7-4 victory. He walked four and struck out three in 101 pitches, 53 strikes.
Moore has allowed five home runs in his last four starts. He is 3-0 with a 2.80 ERA over that span.
The 23-year-old is scheduled to start Wednesday at home against Toronto. He went 1-1 with a 3.26 ERA in four starts last season against the Blue Jays.
|Rays pitchers, umpires fined for actions|
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(5/2/13) Rays pitchers David Price, Matt Moore and Jeremy Hellickson, as well as umpire Tom Hallion were fined for their roles in Sunday's incident at U.S. Cellular Field, according to The Tampa Tribune. Price said he was fined $1,000 and believes all parties were fined the same amount.
The players were fined for violating MLB's social media policy, which prohibits players from using Twitter to criticize, denigrate or question the integrity of an umpire. Hallion was fined for his reaction to Price's claim the umpire used a cuss word during an unprovoked comment to Price as the pitcher walked off the field after the seventh inning.

|Matt Moore entered the 2012 season with a lot of hype and expectations of a Rookie of the Year award. By the middle of May, Moore mostly delivered a heaping helping of frustration to Fantasy owners. After his first seven starts, he had a 5.31 ERA, as he had trouble commanding the strike zone and staying deep into games. From his eighth start forward, Moore started deceiving batters more, getting more swinging and looking strikes, and as the season wore on, he started to allow fewer homers. As long as Moore remains a flyball pitcher, home runs will be something of a risk, but a 3.38 ERA and 9.2 K/9 rate over his final 24 starts showed the kind of help he can provide in Fantasy. With his rookie season now under his belt, Moore could take another step forward in 2013. That potential makes him a pitcher worth taking in the early portion of the middle rounds. (Updated 1/2/13)|
