MLB Game Summary - Tampa Bay at Chicago Cubs



(Sunday, August 10)

Final Score: Chicago Cubs 3, Tampa Bay 2 (12 innings)

Chicago, IL (SportsNetwork.com) - Anthony Rizzo hit a walk-off RBI single in the bottom of the 12th inning to lift the Chicago Cubs to a 3-2 win over the Tampa Bay Rays to salvage a three-game set.

Ryan Sweeney led off the 12th with a single against Cesar Ramos (2-4) and moved to second on Chris Coghlan's sacrifice bunt. Javier Baez then reached on a strikeout wild pitch to put runners on the corners. Another wild pitch allowed Baez to advance to second and Rizzo followed by launching his single into the gap in right-center.

"That was big, he stayed on it," Cubs manager Rick Renteria said of Rizzo's at-bat. "Fortunately for us, we outlasted them today."

Carlos Villanueva (5-6) tossed a scoreless top of the 12th to earn the win.

Baez and Rizzo each went 2-for-6 with Baez also driving in a run for Chicago, which played its sixth extra-inning game in its last 12 contests.

Desmond Jennings had an RBI double among his two hits for the Rays, who had a three-game winning streak snapped.

Both teams plated a run apiece in the fifth and seventh innings.

Curt Casali hit a leadoff double in the top of the fifth and later scored when a charging Baez committed a throwing error on Jennings' infield single. Baez's RBI single in the home half tied the score.

Jennings cracked a one-out RBI double in the top of the seventh. Sweeney hit a one-out double in the bottom of the frame and Coghlan followed with a triple to plate him and make it 2-2.
