John Jaso hit a tiebreaking RBI single in the eighth after Carlos Pena had another rare clutch playoff hit for Tampa Bay, and the Rays avoided elimination in the AL division
series with a 6-3 victory over the Texas Rangers on Saturday.
The Rays, the AL's best team in the regular season, cut their
deficit in the best-of-five series to 2-1. Game 4 is Sunday.
With the record crowd of 51,746 still buzzing from Ian Kinsler's
leadoff homer in the seventh that put the Rangers up 2-1, Dan
Johnson doubled off the wall with one out in the Rays eighth. Pena
followed with an RBI single that tied the game.
