Archer loses perfect-game bid, Rays fall to Tigers 2-1

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) Chris Archer wasn't quite perfect enough.

On a day when the Tampa Bay right-hander retired his first 19 batters in the longest perfect-game bid in franchise history, Justin Verlander outlasted Archer and the Detroit Tigers beat the Rays 2-1 Wednesday to avoid a three-game sweep.

"I've thrown better games statistically," Archer said, "To me, I didn't throw a perfect game or a no-hitter, so there's no reason to think: `Oh, I was so close.' I gave up three hits in the seventh inning. If I didn't, things would be a lot different."
