ST. PETERSBURG (AP) — Asdrubal Cabrera hit a go-ahead two-run homer in the eighth inning and the Tampa Bay Rays beat the Miami Marlins 4-2 on Tuesday night.

Cabrera made it 4-2 with his one-out drive off Bryan Morris (5-4).

The Rays are 12-6 in interleague play this season.

Adam Conley gave up two runs and five hits over six innings for the Marlins, who had a five-game winning streak end. Miami dropped to 0-8 in road games against American League teams this season.

Tampa Bay’s Matt Moore, bidding to win consecutive starts, allowed one run and seven hits in seven innings.

Miami pulled even at 2 in the eighth on Martin Prado’s run-scoring single off Alex Colome (7-5). Brad Boxberger pitched the ninth for his 39th save.

After rookie Mikie Mahtook hit a solo homer in the third inning, Kevin Kiermaier gave Tampa Bay a 2-1 lead with a bases-loaded sacrifice fly in the fourth. Mahtook has four homers in 22 games, including 15 starts, since being recalled Sept. 1 from Triple-A Durham.

Christian Yelich put the Marlins up 1-0 with an RBI double in the first.

Prado, Miami’s third baseman, made a nifty catch to end the seventh, lunging over the short wall down the left-field line to grab Mahtook’s foul ball.

Rays second baseman Logan Forsythe left with a bruised right foot. He was hit by a pitch from Conley in the first inning.

TRAINER’S ROOM

Marlins: RF Giancarlo Stanton, sidelined since June 26 with a broken left wrist, has been shut down for the rest of the season. He is expected to be ready for spring training. … SS Adeiny Hechavarria (left hamstring) might return this week.

Rays: It hasn’t been announced if C Curt Casali (left hamstring) will play again this year.

UP NEXT

Marlins: RHP Jarred Cosart (2-4), Wednesday night’s starter, is 3-1 with a 1.24 ERA in four starts against Tampa Bay.

Rays: LHP Drew Smyly (4-2) will make his ninth start Wednesday night since returning from a torn left labrum. He has alternated between outings of allowing four runs or more and scoreless starts over that stretch.
