Rays Top Mariners 5-4, Snap Six-Game Skid

Mike McGinnis/Getty Images(ST. PETERSBURG, Fla.) --  The Tampa Bay Rays scored two runs in the bottom of the ninth inning to top the Seattle Mariners 5-4 on Wednesday night, snapping a six-game losing streak in the process.

After Matt Joyce singled home Ben Zobrist to tie the game at four in the ninth inning, backup outfielder Jason Bourgeois hit the game-winning single that propelled the Rays to victory.

"No outs, bases loaded, that's like a hitter's dream to be in that situation with the game on the line," said Bourgeois, who entered the game in the eighth inning as a pinch runner. "I was looking for pitch up and out over the plate. I got it and took advantage of it."

Joel Peralta pitched a scoreless ninth inning to earn his second victory of the season.  David Price looked to become the first Rays starting pitcher to win a game in the month of August, but gave up four runs on five hits in seven innings.
