Hitless in his last 13 at bats, Rays’ infielder Tim Beckham decided to give himself a memory for the off-season.
Beckham delivered a bases-loaded single with two outs in the ninth, leading the Rays to a rare come-from-behind victory in their game with the Toronto Blue Jays. Before Saturday night, the Rays had come from behind after trailing in the eighth inning only twice in 66 games.
A sharp single to left field changed that and gave the Rays their 79th victory of the season.
Trailing 4-2 in the ninth, the Rays loaded the bases on a double by Grady Sizemore and walks to Steven Souza Jr. and James Loney. Beckham’s hit came on an 0-1 count.
Chris Archer finished his season with a non-decision (he did win after August), although he gave up only one earned run in his five innings. Alex Colome got the win in relief.
For the Rays, Matt Moore tries to have his fourth straight impressive outing after struggling to reach five innings in his first few starts. It will be the final game of the season for the Rays.
