ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Jake Odorizzi won his third consecutive start, James Loney had two RBIs and the Tampa Bay Rays beat the Milwaukee Brewers 2-1 on Monday night. Odorizzi (7-8) allowed one run and three hits in seven innings to beat the team that took him 32nd overall in the 2008 draft. Tampa Bay took a 2-1 lead in the sixth when Loney drove in two with a two-out, bases-loaded single off Kyle Lohse (11-5), who gave up two runs and four hits over six innings. The Rays had won nine in a row before a 3-2 loss Sunday to Boston. The winning streak was the second longest in team history. Mark Reynolds put the Brewers ahead 1-0 with his 18th homer of the season in the third. After Brad Boxberger struck out the side in the eighth, Jake McGee got the three outs for his 12th save in 13 chances. Lohse benefited from a key defensive play in the fifth when Reynolds, the first baseman, ran down Logan Forsythes bloop hit that went into foul territory. Reynolds threw the ball to shortstop Jean Segura, who then made a relay throw to get Forsythe at third. Lohse was coming off a pair of victories in which he had allowed two runs in 13 2-3 innings. The right-hander dropped to 5-4 in 12 games against the Rays. Tampa Bay right fielder Kevin Kiermaier made nice catches on balls by Khris Davis and Reynolds during the fifth.

SASKATOON -- Tim Bozon looked thin and spoke briefly, his voice hoarse after weeks of using a feeding tube. The French hockey player and Montreal Canadians prospect was released from a Saskatoon hospital Friday, four weeks after falling seriously ill with bacterial meningitis. "Im doing good," he said. "Ive been through a lot and I feel way better now." Bozon and his family will travel to Cranbrook, where he will drop the puck at a playoff game of his Western Hockey League team, the Kootenay Ice. "Im excited to leave the hospital," he said. "Its going to be exciting to get back to Kootenay and see the boys and say bye one more time before going back to Europe." Father Philippe Bozon, who played in the NHL for the St. Louis Blues in the 1990s, was visibly emotional and thanked the Saskatoon and broader hockey community for their generosity and support. He added treatment has been costly, and encouraged the public to donate to a trust fund established to help pay the familys medical and other expenses "I want to say from my wife and I how proud we are of you Timmy, for fighting like this," he said. "I know it was a tough fight and I know you are still fighting, and I will always have faith in you." After travelling to Cranbbrook to collect Bozons things, the family will go to Montreal to visit the Canadiens organization.dddddddddddd. While there Bozon will also see doctors and receive some dental surgery. From there the family will return to France, where Bozon will enter a sports rehabilitation clinic in the southwestern town of Capbreton. Neurologist Gary Hunter treated Bozon from the day he arrived at Saskatoons Royal University Hospital, and said prompt medical attention and an induced coma were critical to his recovery. "His progress has been really amazing, so I think his prognosis is very good," he said. "Hes a tough guy and hes very motivated so I think hes going to do very well." Hunter said its had to know at this early stage whether he will be able to resume his hockey career. "Its very difficult to speculate on his long term neurologic prognosis," he said. Bozons agent Roly Thompson said he is amazed at Bozons speedy progress, which gives him hope that a full recovery is possible. "Obviously we have a long way to go," he said. "Were going to go through rehab and I think its important that everybody realize its not going to be instant." "But my gut feeling is that hes going to play one day for the Montreal Canadiens."
