ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) - Jake Odorizzi allowed one hit and struck out 10 while pitching into the eighth inning as the Tampa Bay Rays beat the Houston Astros 8-0 on Saturday.

Odorizzi (3-7) retired his first 10 batters before Jose Altuve's one-out infield single in the fourth that went off the pitcher's leg. The right-hander, who went 7 1/3 innings, won for just the second time in his last 14 starts.

Only one runner reached second base against Odorizzi, who walked two. Brad Boxberger and Kirby Yates completed the one-hitter.

Jake Buchanan (0-1) gave up five runs, eight hits and three walks over 4 1/3 innings in his major league debut.
