Souza walked five times as the Tampa bay Rays rolled to a 6-1 victory over the Nationals Monday night, improving the team record to seven games over .500 and stretching their lead in the AL East to a full game. It was Tampa Bay's fourth straight victory.

The Rays got six shutout innings from Erasmo Ramirez, who left with a 5-0 lead.

Logan Forsythe had three hits to lead the Rays, while Joey Butler and Kevin Kiermaier each had two.

Washington left the bases loaded in the first and fifth innings.

The teams play again tonight at 7:10 when the Rays' Alex Colome faces Washington's Turner Roarke.
