ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. – Wil Myers hit a tiebreaking double in the eighth inning and the Tampa Bay Rays beat the Boston Red Sox, 4-3, last night to avoid a three-game sweep.

Myers drove in Evan Longoria, who also doubled off Rubby De La Rosa (0-1), to give the Rays a 4-3 lead.

Jake McGee (5-3) pitched a scoreless eighth before Fernando Rodney got three outs to earn his 34th save. The Rays lead the crowded race for the second AL wild card despite going 5-13 since Aug. 25.

David Ortiz and Jarrod Saltalamacchia homered for Boston, which has an 8 ½-game advantage over second-place Tampa Bay in the AL East.

The Red Sox threatened in the ninth when Stephen Drew had an infield single and pinch-hitter Mike Carp walked with one out. Rodney worked out of the jam when pinch-hitter Will Middlebrooks lined out to third and Dustin Pedroia popped out.

Ortiz hit an opposite-field solo homer to left and Drew had a run-scoring double as the Red Sox tied it at 3 in the sixth.

Ortiz has 43 career homers against Tampa Bay, the second-most by an opponent. Of those, 28 have come at Tropicana Field.

Longoria tripled and scored on Myers’s single to put the Rays ahead 1-0 in the second. James Loney made it 2-0 with an RBI double in the third.

Saltalamacchia snapped an 0-for-21 stretch and pulled Boston to 2-1 on a fourth-inning homer.

Tampa Bay went up 3-1 in the bottom half when Desmomd Jennings hit a solo home run.

Rays starter Jeremy Hellickson allowed three runs and four hits in 5  1∕ 3 innings.

Boston right-hander Jake Peavy appeared to get hit in the leg by Jennings’s drive in the sixth. The ball was redirected to third baseman Xander Bogaerts, who got a forceout at second.

Peavy gave up three runs, four hits and five walks over six innings.

NOTES

∎  The Red Sox will honor New York Yankees closer Mariano Rivera before his last regular-season game at Fenway Park on Sunday. Rivera is retiring after the season.

∎  Boston OF Jacoby Ellsbury (foot), who missed his sixth consecutive game and is not yet doing baseball activities, will have his status evaluated in the next few days.

∎ Shane Victorino was out of the Red Sox lineup because Manager John Farrell wanted to give the outfielder a day off from playing on the artificial turf.

∎  Rays C Jose Molina left the team to be with his mother, who had surgery. He is expected back today.

Yankees 6, Orioles 5

Brendan Ryan scored the tiebreaking run in the ninth inning on a wild pitch by Jim Johnson, and New York defeated Baltimore after blowing a four-run lead.

Mark Reynolds and Curtis Granderson homered for the Yankees, who remained one game behind Tampa Bay for the second AL wild card. New York next travels to first-place Boston for a weekend series between division rivals.

New York led 5-1 before Nick Markakis hit a solo shot in the seventh and Danny Valencia homered with two on against David Robertson in the eighth.

But the Yankees bounced right back in the ninth with an unearned run against Johnson (3-8).

ATHLETICS 8, TWINS 2

A.J. Griffin allowed two hits in seven innings for Oakland.

Josh Reddick homered and had three RBI for Oakland, which has a 3 ½-game lead over idle Texas in the AL West. It is Oakland’s largest lead over the Rangers since Aug. 3. The teams are to scheduled play a three-game series this weekend in the Lone Star State.

Oswaldo Arcia homered for Minnesota, which has lost six of eight.

In winning his fourth straight start, Griffin (14-9) struck out eight and walked just one batter.

Making his first start since being recalled from Triple-A, Minnesota’s Scott Diamond (5-11) allowed five runs – four earned – in 4 2∕3 innings.

ANGELS 4, BLUE JAYS 3

Garrett Richards pitched 6 2∕3 innings for his third straight win and Kole Calhoun hit a solo home run as Los Angeles completed a three-game sweep.

Erick Aybar had two hits and scored twice as the Angels won for the 15th time in 20 games and improved to 12-2 in their past 14 road contests.

Calhoun went 2-for-3 with a walk to help the Angels win for the 10th time in 13 meetings with the Blue Jays. Los Angeles recorded its first sweep in Toronto since April 16-18, 2010.

Jose Reyes homered and finished 4-for-4 with a walk, but the Blue Jays lost for the 29th time when scoring first.

Richards (7-6) allowed three runs and nine hits, walked one and struck out four. He’s 3-0 with a 2.41 ERA in three September starts.

J.A. Happ (4-6) lost for the fourth time in five starts, allowing four runs and six hits in 4 1∕3 innings.
