ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) - Wil Myers' sense of relief was easy to see.
The Tampa Bay right fielder was let off the hook for a defensive lapse Wednesday night that put the Texas Rangers ahead in the 11th inning of a game between AL wild-card leaders when the Rays rallied for a 4-3 victory in the 12th.
After the Rays tied it in the bottom of the 11th, the Rookie of the Year candidate could be seen saying ``Thank God,'' in the dugout.
Myers lackadaisically approached a two-out single to right field with Elvis Andrus on first base. The speedy Rangers shortstop got a great jump off first and scored on the play to put Texas up 3-2.
Myers said Thursday he should've been more aware of the situation.
