Rays lose 7-7

Reliver Joe Nelson continues to give up the long ball, and it was tough to a ball any longer than the two home runs he allowed in the ninth inning Sunday.

With two outs and the Rays up 7-3, Pedro Alvarez launched a three-run bomb that hit halfway up the batter’s eye in center field, some 414 feet from home plate.

Garrett Jones followed with a long home run that landed on the awning that hangs from the second story of the Rays offices that sit in the behind the right field boardwalk and tied the score at 7-7.

That's the way it ended after 11 innings.
