ST. PETERSBURG, Fla., Aug. 3 (UPI) -- Wil Myers singled home Desmond Jennings with the winning run in the 10th inning Saturday, lifting Tampa Bay to a 2-1 interleague win over San Francisco.

The score had been tied 1-1 since the third inning when the Rays finally broke through was a run in the 10th against Giants reliever Jean Machi (2-1).

Jennings coaxed a walk to lead off the inning and stole second. Ben Zobrist was intentionally walked to get to the slumping Evan Longoria, but he also managed a walk to load the bases.

With the Giants outfield playing in, Myers sent a fly ball over the head of left fielder Jeff Francoeur to push Jennings home with the game-winner.

Fernando Rodney (4-2) picked up the victory after Rays starter David Price had yielded just one run on five hits over nine innings.

Zobrist got the other RBI for second-place Tampa Bay, which stayed one game behind Boston in the American League East.

San Francisco's Tim Lincecum threw seven innings of one-run ball but was saddled with a no-decision.

Brandon Crawford got the Giants' only RBI.
