Rays finish with 6-4 win in 10 innings at AL-leading Texas

BY foxsports • October 2, 2016

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) Alexei Ramirez had four hits, including a 10th-inning double before scoring, and the Tampa Bay Rays ended another losing season with a 6-4 victory over the AL West champion Texas Rangers on Sunday.

The Rangers tied it in the ninth against closer Alex Colome, but the Rays then opened the 10th with three consecutive hits off Tanner Scheppers (1-1).

Richie Shaffer led off the 10th with a single before going to third on Ramirez's double and scoring on a wild pitch. Curt Casali then had an RBI double.

Erasmo Ramirez, the seventh Rays pitcher and 14th in the game, worked the 10th for his second save.

Colome (2-4) got the win.

While the Rangers (95-67) fell one win shy of matching the franchise record for victories, they had already clinched home-field advantage through the postseason. They will open the playoffs at home Thursday against the AL wild card winner, either Toronto or Baltimore.
