Rays 7, Marlins 6

Associated Press  |  Last updated May 28, 2013
Desmond Jennings drove in the winning run with a two-out single in the bottom of the ninth inning Tuesday night, lifting the Tampa Bay Rays to a 7-6 victory over the Miami Marlins. The Rays came back from an early 4-0 deficit and won their third in a row. Miami lost its seventh straight game. Kelly Johnson opened the ninth with an infield single and took second on Evan Longoria's single off Mike Dunn (1-1). With two outs, Jennings singled against Chad Qualls. Fernando Rodney (2-2) got the win. Jennings, Luke Scott and Yunel Escobar each had three of Tampa Bay's 16 hits. Greg Dobbs' two-out single off Joel Peralta gave the Marlins a 6-5 lead in the eighth. Singles by Scott, Jennings and Escobar off Dunn tied it in the bottom half. Chris Coghlan homered, tripled and drove in three runs for the Marlins. Miami scored five or more runs in a second straight game for the first time this season. Marcell Ozuna doubled in the Miami second, extending his hitting streak to 13 games, and scored on Justin Ruggiano's single. The Marlins made it 4-0 in the third against Jeremy Hellickson with the help of RBI triples by Derek Dietrich and Coghlan. Coghlan led off the sixth with his first home run of the season. Hellickson pitched 5 1-3 innings, giving up five runs on seven hits. Miami starter Kevin Slowey also pitched into the sixth, leaving after a double by Scott. Jose Lobaton's two-run double off Ryan Webb later in the inning tied it at 5. Johnson doubled home a run in the third. He has 25 RBIs in 22 games this month. NOTES: Rays LHP David Price threw for a second straight day, but the AL Cy Young Award winner will miss a third start since straining his left triceps on May 15. The Rays have made no announcement indicating Price will be taken off the DL when he becomes eligible Friday. ... Marlins INFs Joe Mahoney (right hamstring strain) and Donovan Solano (left intercostal strain) are expected to start playing in minor league games by the end of the week. RHP Nathan Eovaldi (right shoulder inflammation) could be ready to return after two more minor league starts.
