Rays, Damon made history Thursday



Thanks to the Elias Sports Bureau, we learned that Johnny Damon and the Rays made history in Thursday's win:

* It was the first time in the Rays 14-season history they won a game in which they trailed in both the ninth inning and in extra innings. That only happened once in the majors since the start of last season, by the Orioles on July 20 last year, and they did it to the Rays.

* Damon became the first major-leaguer to hit walkoff homers for five different teams, having also done the deed for the Royals, Red Sox, Yankees, and Tigers (twice).
