The Rays won by scoring two runs in the bottom of the eighth inning when Steven Souza Jr. singled in David DeJesus and Jake Elmore singled in Souza. Shortstop Alexi Ramirez gloved Elmore's single, but he flipped the ball badly and Souza scored from second.

The White Sox had scored two in the top of the eighth on a home run by Conor Gillaspie.

Rays' starter Chris Archer pitched one batter into the eighth but got a no-decision. He finally walked a batter after 107 straight.

The Rays will try to sweep the series today at 1:10 p.m.
