Zobrist’s homer in 11th give Rays win over Rangers

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — Ben Zobrist’s home run in the bottom of the 11th inning lifted the Tampa Bay Rays to a 3-1 victory over the Texas Rangers on Friday night.

Zobrist’s 16th homer came off Mark Lowe (0-1) after a leadoff walk to B.J. Upton.

Wade Davis (3-0) got the win after striking out five of the six hitters he faced in the 10th and 11th innings.

The Rays’ fifth win in six games featured a total of 29 strikeouts for both teams.

Texas starter Derek Holland struck out a career-high 11 while giving up only two hits and two walks in eight innings. Holland threw a season-high 116 pitches, retiring five Rays in a span of seven pitches at one point.

Evan Longoria’s fourth-inning homer, his 11th, was the first hit off Holland.
