Rays' Chris Archer collects first MLB hit, RBI

CHICAGO -- Tim Beckham smacked a two-run homer and Chris Archer helped himself with his first Major League hit, both coming in a five-run fourth inning, to spark the Rays to a 6-5 Interleague victory over the Cubs on Tuesday.

The game marked Tampa Bay's first at Wrigley Field since 2014 when Joe Maddon was the Rays' manager. Now the Cubs' skipper, Maddon said before the game he was looking forward to catching up with his former players and coaches. He got a good look at Archer, who not only struck out eight over six innings but added an RBI single to help the Rays stay in contention in the American League Wild Card race.
