  • Hustling Span helps Rays walk off in 10th
    The Rays never quit Friday night, and the reward came via an 8-7 walk-off win over the Twins at Tropicana Field. But it wasn't your everyday walk-off win. Denard Span beat out a two-out ground ball to first base, and pinch-runner Johnny Field raced home from second with the winning run. Rays players rushed from the dugout onto the field to celebrate, only to have to wait until an official review confirmed that they had in fact won. The Rays saw a 6-2 lead disappear in the eighth thanks to Eddie Rosario's grand slam off Sergio Romo. Max Kepler then homered off Ryan Yarbrough in the top of the ninth to give the Twins a one-run lead.
