The first question thrown at Matt Moore on Saturday night after he won his 12th game of the season was if he felt he deserved to make the All-Star team.

Moore was somewhat stunned by the question, but what the heck, did he feel that way?

"I think those decisions are all subject to people's opinion and things like that," Moore said after he helped pitch the Rays past the visiting White Sox, 3-0, in front of 21,047 at "Turn Back the Clock Night" at Tropicana Field.

The teams for the July 16 All-Star Game at Citi Field in New York were announced about 30 minutes before Moore threw his first pitch. Ben Zobrist was the lone Ray to make the team, though that can change if there is an injury to one of the All-Stars this week.

"In no way do I want to take away from anybody who did make the team," Moore said. "I'm very happy for Zobrist. He's a great player to take off this team as far as winning one game, very versatile, can do a lot of different things.

"I'm extremely happy for Ben. Hopefully we can get a win in the All-Star Game and set us up for the playoffs."

Moore pitched 6 1/3 innings of five-hit ball to win his fourth straight start Saturday. He walked two and struck out six to improve his record to 12-3. He joined David Price as the only Rays pitchers to win 12 games before the All-Star Break. Price did it last season, earning win No. 12 in the Rays' 88th game. Saturday was the Rays 88th game, too.

"He certainly pitched like an All-Star," Rays manager Joe Maddon said. "There's still a possibility. We'll see how it all shakes out these next couple of days."

Moore was matched against White Sox left-hander Chris Sale, who is now 0-6 in his last seven starts despite a 3.10 ERA. Sale, who fell to 5-8, will represent the White Sox in the All-Star Game along with reliever Jesse Crain.

"I'd definitely trade that in for a win," Sale said of his selection. "It's an honor. I'm very thankful and fortunate to be in that position."

Moore could be in the same position, but wasn't one of the 14 pitchers voted by the players or selected by Tigers manager Jim Leyland, who will manage the American League squad.

"He, to me, is an All Star-caliber pitcher," Sam Fuld said. "We wouldn't be eight games above .500 without him."

Moore said he is not disappointed with what many view as a snub.

"Not really," he said. "I didn't have a goal at the start of the season and say I want to make the All-Star Team. It wasn't like that. If things had been a little different in that rough streak I could have had a chance, but it is what it is. Zo's going to go over there and play his butt off and hopefully get a win."

The last time Sale and Moore hooked up at the Trop they combined for 25 strikeouts, including 15 from Sale, in a 2-1 White Sox win on Memorial Day 2012. Sale struck out nine Saturday and fell victim to the only two left-handed hitters in the Rays lineup - Luke Scott and Fuld.
