by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

Guyer led off the game in the first with his solo shot, the first Ray to do so this season.

"Just trying to get my pitch to hit and not miss it, which I have been doing all year," Guyer said to MLB.com. "So I was just glad I was able to capitalize and help the team out early."

Guyer went 2 for 4, lifting his average to .250. He started the scoring with a first-inning leadoff homer, his first of the season. Guyer now has seven RBI on the year. 

"BG's been outstanding," Rays manager Kevin Cash said. "We pick his spots when he plays. Obviously, he's in there against lefties. He's in there against some righties. But he really does a nice job.

"It's amazing how many times his barrel finds the ball. Gets big hits, gets us going with the leadoff home run. And then probably the next big hit was to add on two more runs to make it 5-0."
