Lind's 9th Inning HR Heroics Ends Rays Chance To Sweep

Toronto, ON (Sports Network) – Adam Lind’s two-run homer off Rafael Soriano in the ninth inning lifted Toronto over the AL wild-card leading Rays, 5-4.

B.J. Upton hit a sacrifice fly to score Brad Hawpe in the top of the ninth to give the Rays the lead, and Soriano (2-2) came in to close out the potential three-game sweep. The Jays had other plans, however, as Lind followed Aaron Hill’s leadoff single with a no-doubter over the right-field wall, ending Toronto’s four-game skid.

The loss leaves Tampa Bay a full game behind the AL East-leading Yankees, who are in action in Texas.
