The Tampa Bay Rays get to live another day with a 6-3 victory over the Texas Rangers on Saturday. The Rays are still down one game, 1-2, in their best-of-five AL division series with the Rangers. The Rays have forced a Game 4 on Sunday.

The Rangers Ballpark was anticipating a wrap up of the Rangers-Rays series but the Rays somehow found a way to win despite struggling early at bat.

The Rays were just five outs away from elimination as they trailed the Rangers 2-1 in the eighth inning. Carlos Pena made a clutch hit in the eight to tie the score at 2-2 and was followed by a John Jaso run-scoring single that broke the tie in favor of the Tampa Bay Rays, 3-2.

Carl Crawford opened the ninth inning with a homer followed by a two-run homer by Carlos Pena to pad the lead, 6-2. A solo homer by Nelson Cruz cut the lead Rays lead, 6-3, but it was not enough to overcome the late onslaught by the Rays.
