ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) - Sean Rodriguez hit a three-run home run with two out in the 11th inning Thursday to lift the Tampa Bay Rays to a 5-2 victory over the Oakland Athletics.
Rodriguez's team-leading fifth homer came off Luke Gregerson after Desmond Jennings' two-out single had tied it against Dan Otero (4-1).
Yoenis Cespedes' sacrifice fly had given the A's a 2-1 lead in the top of the 11th.
Josh Lueke (1-2) got the win after one inning of relief for the Rays, who broke a four-game losing streak.
