ST. PETERSBURG (AP) — Asdrubal Cabrera hit a go-ahead two-run homer in the eighth inning and the Tampa Bay Rays beat the Miami Marlins 4-2 on Tuesday night.
Cabrera made it 4-2 with his one-out drive off Bryan Morris (5-4).
The Rays are 12-6 in interleague play this season.

After rookie Mikie Mahtook hit a solo homer in the third inning, Kevin Kiermaier gave Tampa Bay a 2-1 lead with a bases-loaded sacrifice fly in the fourth. Mahtook has four homers in 22 games, including 15 starts, since being recalled Sept. 1 from Triple-A Durham.
