Recap: Tampa Bay vs. San Diego

St. Petersburg, FL (Sports Network) - Ryan Roberts' go-ahead two-run single was part of a four-run seventh inning that lifted the Tampa Rays to a 6-3 win over the San Diego Padres in the opener of a three-game interleague set.

Matt Joyce tallied two hits and scored twice for Tampa Bay, which plated six unanswered runs.

Rays starter Alex Cobb struck out 13 batters, but lasted just 4 2/3 innings after surrendering three runs on five hits and two walks. Jake McGee (1-2) tossed a scoreless seventh to pick up the win.

Will Venable and Carlos Quentin smacked solo homers for the Padres, who had their four-game winning streak snapped.

The Rays trailed 3-2 after six innings, but surged ahead in the seventh.

Jose Lobaton led off the inning with a single and Yunel Escobar reached when Dale Thayer (0-2) fielded his sacrifice bunt and committed a throwing error to first. Joyce's base hit then loaded the bases before Roberts lined a single to left to bring home Lobaton and Escobar.

Ben Zobrist pushed across Joyce and Roberts with a ground-ball base hit up the middle to give Tampa Bay a 6-3 lead.

Joel Peralta tossed a scoreless eighth for Tampa Bay and Fernando Rodney worked around a leadoff walk in the ninth to notch his fifth save of the year.

The Padres opened the scoring with a pair of solo homers in the first and plated another run in the third.

Venable ripped a one-out shot just over the wall in right and Quentin stepped up two batters later and hooked the eighth pitch of his at-bat down the left- field line for a 2-0 lead. Venable led off the third and struck out swinging, but reached first on a wild pitch. He stole second and third before scoring on a balk to make it 3-0.

The Rays responded and pushed across two runs in the home half. Evan Longoria had an RBI single and Roberts scored on a wild pitch.

Game Notes

The Rays were 4-of-11 with runners in scoring position, while San Diego was 1- for-5 with RISP ... Venable has seven stolen bases and five homers this year ... Cobb threw 117 pitches.
