When all the smoke had cleared, the Rays had suffered their seventh walk-off loss of the season and the 113th in club history. However, the loss was only the third in Rays history that came by virtue of an error.

Accounting for the other two were right-hander Albie Lopez's throwing error in a 7-6 loss at Kansas City on April 25, 2000, and third baseman Aubrey Huff's fielding error in a 3-2 loss at Oakland on May 6, 2006.
