ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) -- Desmond Jennings drove in the winning run with a two-out single in the bottom of the ninth inning Tuesday night, lifting the Tampa Bay Rays to a 7-6 victory over the Miami Marlins.

The Rays came back from an early 4-0 deficit and won their third in a row. Miami lost its seventh straight game.

Kelly Johnson opened the ninth with an infield single and took second on Evan Longoria's single off Mike Dunn (1-1). With two outs, Jennings singled against Chad Qualls.

Fernando Rodney (2-2) got the win.

Jennings, Luke Scott and Yunel Escobar each had three of Tampa Bay's 16 hits.
