Brignac blast starts Rays rally

A solo homer by Reid Brignac in the seventh inning and a single to left field by Elliot Johnson with one out in the eight gives the Rays a 4-3 lead.

Johnson steals second and continues to third on a wild pitch. He comes home on an infield single to third by pinch-hitter Willy Aybar to give the Rays a 5-3 lead.

Two more runs score on a triple, oops, a double by Tim Beckham. the top pick in last year's draft blooped a ball down the right field line and was well on his way to third when he fell face-first after rounding second.

Beckham made it back to second as laughter swept through the Rays dugout.

It's 7-3 heading into the ninth.
