Bottom of the 9th

Best part of the Rays being down?

The video screen pump-up, stuffed with blood-boiling clips from Animal House, Rocky II, Hoosiers, Independence Day and Rudy.

It's awesome. I'm a better blogger for watching it.

The Trop is rocking, and the top of the lineup will face Rowland-Smith. Seattle's closer, J.J. Putz, is hurt, so the Rays should take advantage.

Aki goes down looking, however, so now it's Crawford - who promptly pops out.

All up to Pena, whose third-inning home run just landed in Bradenton. The Rays could use another one now, and this place will explode if he does.

He doesn't - Pena whiffs on an 0-2 pitch, and the Rays lose their third straight, 6-5.

They are now 3-4. Same ol' Rays.

This John Lembo, signing off.
