RBI single in tenth gives Rays a 10-9 win over Tigers
(ST. PETERSBURG) - This time the Tampa Bay offense picked up the Rays pitchers. Daniel Robertson hit an RBI single in the 10th inning and the Rays won for the 12th time in their last 13 home games by beating the Detroit Tigers 10-9 Monday night. Tampa Bay, coming off consecutive road shutout wins over the New York Mets, entered with a 1.82 ERA over the previous 15 games. Kevin Kiermaier (key-er-myer) had a one-out triple off Blaine Hardy (3-2) in the 10th. After Matt Duffy walked, Robertson won it on his hit to center. Matt Andriese (an dreeze) (2-3), the eighth Tampa Bay reliever, worked a scoreless 10th. The Rays took a 5-0 lead in the first. Two of the runs scored when Tigers right fielder Nicholas Castellanos lost Adeiny Hechavarria's (ah-denny heck a var-EE-ah) two-out fly that dropped for a double. Niko Goodrum had two doubles and three RBI for the Tigers, who have lost 16 of 20. Goodrum had an RBI double before Jose Iglesias drove in two with a double in a four-run seventh that pulled the Tigers even at 7-7. After the Rays took a 9-7 lead in the seventh, the Tigers tied it 9-9 during the eighth when Victor Martinez had an RBI single and pinch-runner JaCoby Jones scored when first baseman Jake Bauers flipped a toss past reliever Sergio Romo for an error on Mikie Mahtook's infield single. Tampa Bay's Chris Archer lasted just 3 1/3 innings, giving up three runs and six hits during first outing since going on the 10-day disabled list June 3rd with a left abdominal strain. Tigers starter Francisco Liriano allowed seven runs and eight hits over 2 1/3 innings.
