The Rays ended a good road trip in a bad way Wednesday evening, blowing another ninth inning lead and losing to the Jays 4-3 in 10 innngs.
The Rays took a 3-2 lead into the ninth, having gotten 8 strong innings from Jeremy Hellickson and rallying in the top of the ninth to snap a 2-2 tie, James Loney singling in Evan Longoria, who had doubled to extend his career best hitting streak to 16 games.
The Rays turned to Fernando Rodney to get the last three outs, but he failed them again. Rodney gave up a leadoff homer to Jose Bautista, his second of the game, and then was lifted after a one-out walk to Adam Lind. Joel Peralta came in and got them out of that mess.
The Jays won it in the 10th with Cesar Ramos on the mound. Colby Rasmus reached on a rare error by 1B James Loney, who couldn't handle a low throw by C Jose Molina after fielding Rasmus's squibber. Rasmus moved to second on a bunt and then third on a ground out.
The Rays turned next to Kyle Farnsworth, and after getting ahead 0-and-2 on Jose Bautista, he gave up a single to rightfield tha scored the winner.
The Rays are off Thursday and open a weekend series with the Yankees on Friday at the Trop.
