Roberts then followed with a two-run double to ice the contest for Tampa Bay, which took the rubber match of a three-game set at Coors Field.

James Loney went 3-for-4 with an RBI and three runs scored in the victory.

Alex Cobb (4-2) earned the decision, allowing three runs on eight hits over 6 2/3 innings. The right-hander walked one and struck out six.
