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.
