Smoak Powers Mariners To 6-4 Win Over Rays

SEATTLE (AP) - Justin Smoak doubled in a pair of runs off Tampa Bay reliever Joel Peralta in the eighth inning and the Seattle Mariners rallied for a 6-4 victory over the Rays on Friday night.
    
The Rays' lead was cut to two games over the Cleveland Indians and Baltimore Orioles in the race for the second wild-card berth in the American League.
    
After tying the game in the top of the eighth, the Rays couldn't keep the Mariners from going ahead.
    
Kyle Seager hit a fly ball off Peralta (2-6) deep into the gap in left-center.
    
Though center fielder Desmond Jennings got in position for the play, the ball caromed off the heel of his glove and fell to the turf allowing Seager to reach second base on the error.
    
Kendrys Morales walked before Smoak's fly down the right field line just missed the glove of a diving Wil Myers. Seager and pinch runner Abraham Almonte scored to give the Mariners a 6-4 lead.
    
Carter Capps (3-3) picked up the victory in relief.
    
Danny Farquhar pitched a scoreless ninth to earn his 13th save.
