ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) - Rookie Chris Archer pitched a five-hitter for his first complete game in the majors and the Tampa Bay Rays beat the Houston Astros 5-0 Sunday.

Archer (4-3) struck out eight and walked none in his 13th big league start, including nine this season. He made his debut last year.

Desmond Jennings homered as the Rays won for the 14th time in 16 games.

The Astros went into the All-Star break with a 17-inning scoreless streak. Houston has lost 12 of 15 and has the worst record in the majors at 33-61.
