ST. PETERSBURG -- Sooner or later, one of the league's top pitchers had to get it done against the Rays.

Justin Verlander proved to be that guy Monday night in a 5-2 Tigers win over Tampa Bay with 13,048 in attendance at Tropicana Field.

The Rays (69-57) saw their five-game winning streak snapped while taking only their third loss in their last 13 games. They are 0-4 against the Tigers this season. With the first-place Yankees idle on Monday, the Rays dropped to 8 1/2 games back in the American League East. But the Red Sox lost, leaving the Rays 7 1/2 games behind the AL leader for the Wild Card.
