Curt Casali walked leading off the ninth. Chapman then struck out Brad Miller, Kiermaier and Lucas Duda for his 18th save in 22 chances.
The Rays will return home to St. Petersburg to start a series against t he Red Sox on Friday.

Atlanta scored six runs in the seventh, and five were charged to Scherzer (14-6), who walked the bases loaded and was allowed to remain in the game despite having thrown 114 pitches. Swanson then hit a 1-0 pitch to left to make it 4-2.
