ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Luke Scott downplayed his contribution to Tampa Bays win. Scott hit a two-run homer and a go-ahead RBI single Saturday but he credited the efforts of his Rays teammates in a 4-3 victory over the Houston Astros. Trailing 3-0, Scott hit a two-run homer off Houston starter Dallas Keuchel in the fifth. Yunel Escobar then had a two-out double, stole third and scored on Desmond Jennings RBI bunt single. In the sixth, Wil Myers singled with two outs then stole second before scoring on Scotts hit. "Theyre little things that mount up in the course of a game, and I think thats indicative of what weve been doing as a lineup," Scott said. "Guys up and down the lineup contributing all sorts of things with the bat, with the legs." After Scotts eighth homer got the Rays on the board, Escobar doubled with two outs and stole third base on a very close -- and risky -- play. "Thats got to be almost a 100 per cent play if youre going to try that," Rays manager Joe Maddon said. "Why do that? Because then Desmond can do what he did." Jennings beat out a bunt down the first base line and Escobar scored to make it 3-3. "The pitcher was lifting his leg and he gave me just one look," Escobar explained through an interpreter. "I thought I could get a jump and get to third base. After that, a wild pitch or anything could score me, so I took a chance." Roberto Hernandez survived a shaky first inning to post the Rays 14th straight quality start, going six innings and giving up three runs and six hits. He won for the first time in six starts since June 11. Hernandez (5-10) struck out six. Myers had two hits and scored twice for the Rays, who have won 13 of 15. Fernando Rodney pitched the ninth for his 22nd save. The Astross jumped out to a 3-0 lead behind Brett Wallaces two-run homer and J.dddddddddddd. Martinezs RBI groundout. Houston had four hits in the first but only two the rest of the way and never got a runner to second base in the final eight innings. The Rays tied it in the fifth against Keuchel, who gave up six hits and three runs in 5 1-3 innings. Scotts single in the sixth came off Lucas Harrell (5-10), who relieved with one out. "When youre called on, you have to go up there and get people out," Harrell said. "It doesnt matter what the situation is, you have to go out there and make pitches." Scott, who extended his hitting streak to nine games, is hitting .373 with five home runs in his last 23 games. "Ive had some moments in my career like this and even better, where the baseball slows down for me and the swing feels good and Im not missing the pitches Ive been getting to hit," he said. "Its familiar territory, but its been a long time and Im enjoying it."
