Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

Sean Rodriguez, the Rays current homerun leader, snaps a four game losing streak with a walk-off homerun against the A's.

Your new homerun leader for the Tampa Bay Rays, Sean Rodriguez, gave the team their first walk-off victory of the season yesterday over the Oakland Athletics. The win snapped a four-game losing streak for the Rays. Feel free to watch the homerun again below.

Danny recapped yesterday’s win here and highlighted Alex Cobb’s return to the mound.

Next up, the struggling Boston Red Sox come to town for a three-game series this weekend. They’ve lost seven in a row after finishing up an 0-6 homestand, yesterday. Chris Archer will take the mound against John Lackey at 7:10 PM tonight.

By the time this contest ends on June 15, could the Rays have a different closer? You can enter here to win lunch with Grant Balfour at Outback.

Alex Cobb will be joining Marc Topkin for a Lunchtime Live Q&A on the Tampa Bay Times website this afternoon at 12:30 PM.
