Rays rally past Mariners, build wild-card lead

SEATTLE (AP) - Pinch-hitter Sean Rodriguez had a go-ahead single in the eighth inning and the Tampa Bay Rays rallied past the Seattle Mariners 4-1 Sunday to build their wild-card edge.

 

The Rays lead Baltimore and Cleveland, who both lost, by two games for the second AL wild-card spot.

 

Trailing 1-0, Tampa Bay scored three times in the eighth. Rodriguez broke a tie with an RBI single and another run came home when center fielder Abraham Almonte bobbled the ball for an error.

 

The Rays began their 10-game road trip in sole possession of the first wild-card spot and a four-game lead on the second wild-card position. Tampa Bay completed the swing at just 3-7.
