The Rays face another do-or-die game Wednesday night at Cleveland in the AL wild-card game. Tampa Bay is in the playoffs for the fourth time in six seasons.
The Rays and Rangers both won Sunday and ended up even. They'll meet Monday night in Texas, with the winner earning the second wild-card spot and playing at Cleveland on Wednesday night.
Rangers pitcher Colby Lewis will miss the rest of the season because of a torn flexor tendon in his right elbow.
"I was told that I did what they expected of me. I didn't get mad because they sent me down," Perez said through a translator.
