The Tampa Bay Rays used a two-out rally to score three fifth-inning runs, erasing a 2-1 deficit to go on and defeat the Philadelphia Phillies 4-3 Saturday at Tropicana Field.
Trailing after Andrew McCutchen broke a 1-1 tie in the top of the inning with his tenth home run of the year, Manuel Margot started the rally with a one-out double off Phillies starter Zack Wheeler. After Brett Phillips struck out for the second out of the inning, Mike Zunino picked up his teammate with a base hit that brought in Margot to tie the game. Randy Arozarena was hit by a Wheeler pitch to move the catcher into scoring position, and Brandon Lowe and Willy Adames each came up with RBI singles to give the Rays a 4-2 lead.
Philadelphia took the initial lead in the top of the first, as Jon Curtiss, who finished off Friday night's game allowed singles to McCutchen and Alec Bohm, and following flyouts by Harper and J.T. Realmuto, Jean Segura's infield single and a throwing error by Yoshi Tsutsugo allowed McCutchen to make it 1-0.
Tsutsugo's RBI single tied the game at 1 in the fourth.
Tampa Bay can finish off the 2020 regular season a three-game sweep and reach the 40-win plateau with a victory Sunday in the finale. Josh Fleming will get the start, taking on Aaron Nola. First pitch is scheduled for 3:10, with coverage on WDAE beginning at 2:30.
