ST. PETESBURG, Fla. -

Luke Scott had a go-ahead RBI single in the sixth inning after he tied it with a two-run homer in the fifth, leading the Tampa Bay Rays to a 4-3 victory over the Houston Astros on Saturday.

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.

Wil 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.

Brett Wallace homered for the Astros, losers of 11 of 14.
