VIDEO: What Did Cole Figueroa Think Of His Walk Off Hit?

Rays Win 1-0 On Figueroa’s Walk Off Double


Cole Figueroa came in to pinch hit for Sean Rodriguez in the bottom of the ninth inning with Desmond Jennings standing at second base in a scoreless tie.

He picked the right time to get his first career extra base hit as he doubled in the alley in right center to score Jennings with the winning run.

It was the 14th career walk off pinch hit in Rays history and first since September 23, 2013 when James Loney launched a walk off pinch hit home run off the Orioles Tommy Hunter (VIDEO).

Became the first Rays player to walk off  within his first four major league games and the first major league player since Derek Norris of the Oakland Athletics on June 24, 2012.

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.
