Gray (10-3), who lowered his AL-best ERA to 2.04, walked one and struck out six. He will not pitch in the All-Star Game and instead make his next start Friday against the Twins. Corey Kluber (4-10) gave up a two-run homer to All-Star Stephen Vogt.

• TAMPA BAY 4, HOUSTON 3: Matt Moore got his first victory since elbow surgery with help from the Tampa Bay bullpen and the host Rays completed a three-game sweep by beating the Astros, who enter the All-Star break on a six-game losing streak.
