Mariners Lose to Rays in Extras

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) - Ben Zobrist snapped a 14th-inning tie with an RBI double and B.J. Upton homered and drove in two runs to lead the Tampa Bay Rays to a 4-3 victory over the Seattle Mariners on Friday night.

Carlos Pena singled off Tom Wilhelmsen with one out in the 14th, then slid into home plate just ahead of catcher John Jaso's tag after Zobrist doubled down the right field line to end the 4 hour, 46-minute marathon.

Jake McGee (3-2) pitched two-thirds of an inning to escape a jam in the top of the 14th and got the win. The run off Wilhelmsen (3-2) ended the reliever's streak of 24 consecutive scoreless innings over 20 appearances.
