    Houston, TX (Sports Network) - Yunel Escobar drove in three runs, including a go-ahead RBI double in the top of the 11th inning as the Tampa Bay Rays edged the Houston Astros, 7-5, in the finale of a four-game series.

    With Josh Fields (0-1) pitching for the Astros, Jose Lobaton walked to begin the inning and advanced to second on a passed ball. Escobar then ripped an RBI double to right to give the Rays the lead. He later scored on a wild pitch thrown by Wesley Wright.

    Jamey Wright (2-1) pitched a scoreless 10th to pick up the win and Fernando Rodney notched his 18th save.

    The Rays have won five of their last six games.

    Brett Wallace went 3-for-5 with two home runs and four RBI. Jake Elmore drove in the other run for the Astros, who have lost eight of 10.
