 Pena's two-run homer
Facing a 4-0 deficit in the third, Carl Crawford got the Rays on the board, only to be called out at first. Crawford, who appeared to beat the throw, was ejected for vehemently arguing. After Tampa Bay tied the game in the fourth, Carlos Pena's two-run shot in the seventh set a new single-season franchise record at 35 and put the Rays ahead for the win.
