Thank you, James Loney.
With a pinch-hit homer in the bottom of the ninth, James Loney kept the Rays atop the AL Wild Card standings.
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.
