Wendle's hit in 8th helps Rays ding Phillies' playoff hopes

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) Joey Wendle had a go-ahead two-run single in the eighth inning and the AL East champion Tampa Bay Rays rallied to hurt Philadelphia's playoff hopes, beating the Phillies 6-4 on Friday night.

The Rays would clinch the top seed in the American League with an Oakland loss later Friday night; the A's were hosting Seattle. Tampa Bay is looking to finish with the AL's best record for the second time, after topping the league in 2010.

"This team, we find ways to win," Rays manager Kevin Cash said.
