TAMPA, Fla., April 9 (UPI) -- Pinch-hitter Eduardo Perez singled in Jose Cruz Jr. with the winning run in the 10th inning Friday night, giving Tampa Bay a 4-3 win over Baltimore.
The Devil Rays managed just three hits and wasted numerous scoring chances against Orioles starter Sidney Ponson. But they got to Baltimore's bullpen, which used five relievers in a 13-inning win over Boston on Thursday.
After stranding two in the eighth, the Devil Rays tied the game on Robert Fick's one-out homer off Orioles closer Jorge Julio.
After Baltimore went in order in the top of the 10th, John Parrish (0-1) came on. He walked Cruz and pinch-hitter Damian Rolls sacrificed.
