DH Luke Scott hasn't had much opportunity to contribute after missing the first month of the Rays season with injury. Thursday, he was at the center of attention after drawing a bases loaded walk with two outs in the 10th inning that gave the Rays a 5-4 victory.

Evan Longoria started the rally with a two-out double. The Jays then had lefty reliever Aaron Loup intentionally walk lefty swinger James Loney - only the third time Loney has been intentionally walked by a lefty - and brought in Brad Lincoln to face Ryan Roberts, who also walked.

Next was Scott, who was down 0-2 in the count, fouled off a pitch and then took four balls for the game winner.

The Rays (16-18) rallied after a tremendous play at first by Loney, who stretched to reach a throw from pitcher Kyle Farnsworth for the final out.

It was the third-ever matchup of reigning Cy Young Award winners, the Rays' David Price against the Jays R.A. Dickey, who won with the Mets, but it hardly seemed special with a crowd of only 11,979 at the Trop.

Then again, neither Price nor Dickey had been pitching much like an ace, coming in with only three wins between them and ERAs that started with a 5.

Both were better Thursday.

Price went a season-high matching eight innings for the Rays, allowing four runs (two earned) with seven hits and a walk while striking out eight, throwing 117 pitches. Though the stadium radar gun curiously wasn't on the first two innings, Price's velocity seems to be crisper as he hit 94 mph repeatedly per mlb.com's GameDay, and had multiple pitches at 95 mph.

Dickey went six innings, allowing three runs (two earned), with five hits, five walks and five strikeouts, throwing 110 pitches.

The Rays lost catcher Jose Molina, who left with a bruised right knee in the eighth, having been hard by a foul tip earlier in the game.

The Rays took a 2-0 lead in the first off Dickey, showing the necessary patience with his knuckleball. Doubles by Kelly Johnson and, with two outs, Evan Longoria led to the first run, and a single by Matt Joyce the second.

But Price, who has had trouble holding leads, gave it up for the eighth time over his last six starts.

He gave up one in the second, hitting Edwin Encarnacion, who went to second on a ground out and scored on a single by Brett Lawrie. Then Price gave up two in the third, though it wasn't all his fault as Rajai Davis reached with one out on a throwing error by Evan Longoria, then Jose Bautista doubled him in and Edwin Encarnacion made it 3-2 with a broken-bat bloop single.

The Rays tied it in the third when Ben Zobrist - a switch-hitter batting righthanded against the right-handed Dickey's knuckleball - tripled and scored on a passed ball.

The Jays went back ahead in the fifth when Davis singled and stole second and third, as Rays catchers and pitchers have stopped only three of 34 attempted thefts, then scored on a sac fly by Bautista.
