St. Petersburg, PA (Sports Network) - Luke Scott drew a bases-loaded walk to force in the winning run in the bottom of the 10th inning, and the Tampa Bay Rays salvaged a split in a four-game series against the Toronto Blue Jays with a 5-4 victory at Tropicana Field.
Toronto reliever Aaron Loup (1-3) retired the first two batters in the 10th before Evan Longoria doubled. Longoria nearly scored the go-ahead run two innings earlier, but was thrown out at home on a Scott single.
After intentionally walking James Loney, Loup was replaced by Brad Lincoln, who issued a free pass to Ryan Roberts that loaded the bases.
Scott quickly fell behind 0-2 in the count before working the walk.
