Epic comeback
Photos
Rays 10, Blue Jays 9
Joe Nelson loaded the bases before escaping trouble and closing out the 12th inning. (AP)
Jason Bartlett came through in the clutch, doubling home Ben Zobrist for the game-winner in the 12th. Down 9-1 after six, the Rays' hitters awoke with a vengeance. Carlos Pena and Pat Burrell had big hits to pull Tampa Bay within two, and then Pena and Willy Aybar each belted solo blasts in the ninth to tie it.
