ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) - Brett Phillips hit a three-run homer in the 10th inning and the AL East-leading Tampa Bay Rays came back from a three-run deficit in the ninth to beat the Detroit Tigers 7-4.

Taylor Walls drew a leadoff walk in the 10th from Bryan Garcia before Phillips sent a 3-1 pitch into the right-field seats.

Gregory Soto, the fifth Detroit reliever, got his pitching hand on Manuel Margot’s head-high line drive in the ninth that went for a leadoff infield single.

He stayed in with the Tigers ahead 4-1 and walked Francisco Mejía before Brandon Lowe singled.

Michael Fulmer replaced Soto and gave up a two-run single to pinch-hitter Yandy Díaz.

Randy Arozarena tied it at 4 on a sacrifice fly.
