Rays Video Flashback: Get First & Last Home Victories On Walk Off Homers

The Tampa bay Rays have reportedly re-signed first baseman James Loney to a 3-year/$21M dollar contract. One of Loney’s greatest moments of the 2013 season came in the teams final regular season home game as he delivered a 9th inning pinch hit walk off home run to defeat the Baltimore Orioles 5-4.

The Rays home schedule began with a loss to the Orioles in the opener and Fernando Rodney blew a save in the second game. Rodney and the Rays were bailed out when Matt Joyce hit a walk off homer in the bottom of the 9th to give the Rays a 8-7 victory.

I am a fan of all sports but am most passionate about baseball. From the fanatical to analytical, nothing about the game escapes me. Being born and raised in Northeast Ohio I'm very familiar with the heartache and pain that sports can bring and hope that I bring some understanding of the other side to my coverage. I will focus mostly on baseball but also cover the Tampa Bay Lightning, one of the most electric franchises in all of sports. Always willing to converse about any sport and have only one rule and that is be respectful at all times.
