An Eric Hosmer line drive off of Tampa Bay pitcher Alex Cobb’s head took the Rays starter out of the game, but Tampa held on for a 5-3 victory.
Cobb was taken off the field on a stretcher following the Hosmer at-bat and at press time his condition is unknown. Luke Scott, Matt Joyce and Evan Longoria homered in the winning effort for the Rays.
Salvador Perez homered in the eighth in a comeback attempt but KC managed just two baserunners for the rest of the game.
Kansas City goes for the series win while Tampa plays for split on Sunday. Wade Davis takes on Roberto Hernandez (formerly Fausto Carmona) at 12:40 PM CT.
