ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — Luke Scott drew a bases-loaded walk with two outs in the 10th inning to give the Tampa Bay Rays a 5-4 victory over the Toronto Blue Jays on Thursday night.
Scott fell behind 0-2 in the count before taking four straight balls from Brad Lincoln. The Rays loaded the bases on Evan Longoria’s double off Aaron Loup (1-3) and two walks.
The game featured a rare matchup of reigning Cy Young Award winners, however David Price and R.A. Dickey were not involved in the decision. It was only the third time since the Cy Young has been awarded in both leagues that reigning winners have faced each other the following season.
Kyle Farnsworth (2-0) pitched one inning to get the win.
