ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) -- Scott Cousins hit a tiebreaking RBI triple in the 15th inning and the struggling Miami Marlins edged the Tampa Bay Rays 4-3 on Saturday.
Justin Ruggiano doubled with one out and raced home when Cousins, playing his second game since being recalled from the minors, sent a pitch from Brandon Gomes (1-2) down the right-field line.
Ryan Webb (3-1) pitched three scoreless innings for the victory. Heath Bell struck out the side for his 14th save in 18 opportunities.
The Marlins beat their intrastate rivals for the first time in five meetings this year, ending an eight-game losing streak in the annual Citrus Series dating to May 2011. It was Tampa Bay's longest winning streak ever against a NL opponent.
