ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) – Yunel Escobar had an RBI single in the bottom of the 10th inning as the Tampa Bay Rays rallied for a 4-3 victory over the Detroit Tigers on Saturday night.

James Loney had a one-out single off Bruce Rondon (0-1). Pinch-runner Sam Fuld went to second on Wil Myers’ single, and after Luke Scott struck out, both runners advanced on a wild pitch.

Escobar won it for the Rays with a line drive that sailed over the head of center fielder Austin Jackson.

Scott tied it at 3 on a solo homer with one out in the eighth off Tigers starter Justin Verlander, who allowed three runs, nine hits and four walks over a season-high eight innings. Verlander is winless in his last four starts.
