ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) -- Rookie Curt Casali had three hits and homered twice for the second straight game, leading the Tampa Bay Rays to 10-2 victory over the slumping Detroit Tigers on Tuesday night.

Casali hit a two-run homer off All-Star David Price (9-4) in the fourth inning and added a solo shot off the former Rays ace for a 5-1 lead in the sixth. He struck out with the bases loaded in the eighth, finishing 3 for 4 with three RBIs on consecutive nights.

Jake Odorizzi (6-6) allowed one run and six hits over six innings to improve to 2-1 since returning from a five-week stint on the disabled list.
