The Rays haven’t been off to a hot start and they couldn’t right the ship vs. the Orioles tonight. Jamey Wright worked a clean 9th inning and trotted out to hopefully do the same in the 10th. But this time he had to face the top of the Orioles lineup. After he gave up a single to the light hitting Nick Markakis, he was relieved by Brandon Gomes. Manny Machado attempted to bunt Markakis over to second, and accidentally ended up on first base. Adam Jones then seemingly hit a game winning doubel but Nick Markakis had a little base running trouble and couldn’t get home. So bases loaded, Gomes hung a slider and Matt Wieters deposited it in the bleachers. Details below:
A grand slam walk off is a fun affair for all involved (except Brandon Gomes) and its fun to watch grown men jumping around home plate (unless you’re Kendrys Morales). Funny thing is Jamey Wright actually got the lost since he gave up the single to Markakis, who was technically the winning run.
