Aybar leads Rays past Phillies

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) – Willy Aybar homered and drove in three runs as a replacement for an injured Evan Longoria on Thursday night, leading the Tampa Bay Rays to a 10-4 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies in the decisive game of a rematch of last year’s World Series teams.

Ben Zobrist hit a two-run homer and Jason Bartlett extended his career-best hitting streak to a franchise-record 19 games as the Rays, who fell to the Phillies in five games in October, won two straight after dropping the opener of this series 10-1.

The Phillies, who’ve lost 10 of 12, scored four runs in the first, but rookie left-hander Antonio Bastardo (2-3) couldn’t hold the lead.

Andy Sonnanstine (6-7) allowed four runs in 5 1-3 innings, but got the win
