HOUSTON - Yunel Escobar got three hits and drove in three runs, including a tiebreaking double in the 11th inning Thursday that sent the Tampa Bay Rays over the Houston Astros 7-5.

Brett Wallace homered twice for the Astros.

Jose Lobaton walked to start the 11th and moved to second on a passed ball by Jason Castro. Escobar then doubled into the right-field corner off Josh Fields (0-1).

Escobar gave the Rays an insurance run when he scored his second run of the day on a wild pitch later in the 11th.

Jamey Wright (2-1) pitched a scoreless 10th for the win and Fernando Rodney did the same in the 11th for his 18th save.
