Matt Andriese is sticking around longer.

The Tampa Bay Rays are enjoying it more.

Andriese had his finest start of the season Saturday night, retiring 18 of 19 hitters

over his six innings. Andriese sat down the first 11 batters he faced, and he threw only 70 pitches in his six innings of work. Manger Kevin Cash, however, said that six innings had been Andriese's limit, so he went to the bullpen.

Andriese's one-hit shutout performance allowed the Rays to beat Boston, 4-1.

Tampa Bay got a two-run homer from Jake Elmore and one-run shots from Rene Rivera and Evan Longoria in the win. Jake McGee, Kevin Jepson and Brad Boxberger threw one inning of relief apiece to lead the Rays to their win.

Chris Archer goes for his 10th win of the season tomorrow, facing Boston's Justin Masterson.
