Last night, the Tampa Bay Rays pulled off a come from behind victory against the Baltimore Orioles. Alex Cobb held the Rays offense to just one run over his seven innings of work, but the Baltimore bullpen failed tremendously as a wild pitch with the bases loaded made it a one run game. Carlos Gomez would ground into a double play, but fortunately with no one out, to tie the game at three.

Willy Adames would absolutely crush a pitch 434 feet down the left field line in the bottom of the ninth to give the Rays another walk-off victory. It’s the Rays 4th walk-off home run of the season, and their 7th walk-off victory overall.

On the pitching side of things, Tyler Glasnow was incredible as he continues to build up his pitch count. Making his second Rays appearance, Glasnow allowed a run on two hits, while he struck out nine and didn’t walk a batter over four innings of work...dominance. Jaime Schultz allowed the bulk of the Orioles damage, surrendering two runs over two innings. Adam Kolarek impressed as he held Baltimore scoreless for 2 13 innings, before giving way to Sergio Romo, who retired the lone hitter that he faced.
