Detroit Tigers Down Tampa Bay Rays in Extra Innings
By Tampa Bay Rays Baseball Tickets Staff Writer: Allison
Ramon Santiago became Detroit's hero when he pounded an RBI triple to right field in the bottom of the 10th inning to send the Detroit Tigers to a dramatic 2-1 win over the Tampa Bay Rays. Detroit won the game on their home field at Comerica Park.
Detroit has won seven of its past 10 games.
Justin Ruggiano smacked an RBI double and Johnny Damon added a pair of hits for the Rays, who had won six of their previous eight contests.
The scoreless deadlock was broken by Detroit in the 5th with a two-out rally that put Detroit ahead 1-0. The run was scored off a Martinez single laced to center to score Boesch. Tampa Bay threatened in the seventh, loading the bases with only one out. However, the opportunity was squandered.
The Rays fought back and tied the game at one in the eighth and had a chance to take the lead with Evan Longoria at the plate. Runners were at the corners, but Longoria hit into a fielder's choice to end the inning.
