ANAHEIM, Calif. — Matt Moore shrugged off home runs by Mike Trout and Albert Pujols to win his fourth straight decision, and the Tampa Bay Rays completed a four-game sweep of the fading Los Angeles Angels with an 8-3 victory on Sunday.

Tampa Bay tagged Zack Greinke (1-2) and outscored the Angels 37-14 in the series — the Rays set a team record for runs in a four-game set, erupting right after Seattle’s Felix Hernandez pitched a perfect game against them.

Ryan Roberts hit a two-run homer and Matt Joyce and Carlos Pena also drove in two runs each for the Rays.

The Angels lost for the 13th time in 18 games.
