ST. PETERSBURG, Fla., Sept. 7 (UPI) -- Ben Zobrist blasted a two-run homer in the 11th inning Friday that gave Tampa Bay a 3-1 victory over Texas.

The Rangers wasted an outstanding start by Derek Holland while losing for the second time in six games.

Mark Lowe (0-1) came on for his first inning of work in the 11th and opened the frame by issuing a walk to B.J. Upton on a 3-2 pitch. Zobrist then hit his 16th homer of the season.

That gave the win to Wade Davis (3-0), who struck out five while pitching the 10th and 11th innings.

Holland allowed only two hits and struck out 11 in eight innings. Tampa Bay starter Jeremy Hellickson gave up a run on four hits in six frames.

Evan Longoria hit a homer for the Rays in the fourth and Michael Young had one for the Rangers in the fifth.
