Thank you, James Loney.

It was the team’s franchise record-tying 13th walkoff win of the season. It was the Rays’ first pinch-hit homer of the season.

While the Gatorade shower is thrilling, maybe the Rays could take it a little easier on my nerves for the next week.

Tampa Bay heads to New York to face the Yankees for a three-game series before finishing the regular season with a series in Toronto.

Let’s hope the next big celebration for the Rays comes after the secure a spot in the postseason.
