Rays end regular season with win



DETROIT (AP) -- The Tampa Bay Rays took advantage of the weakest link the Detroit Tigers had during their disappointing season.

Ben Zobrist hit a go-ahead single in a four-run eighth and had a solo homer in the 11th, lifting the Rays to an 8-7 win over the Tigers on Sunday.

Detroit failed to meet high expectations for many reasons, but its bullpen might've been the biggest culprit. Perhaps it was fitting that relievers lost a lead after the seventh inning for an unlucky 13th time in their home finale.
