A four-run ninth inning was the difference last night, as the Tampa Bay Rays grabbed a come-from-behind 7-6 win over the Toronto Blue Jays in front of 13,439 at the Rogers Centre in Toronto.

The Jays built a 5-0 lead with a run in the first, three more in the fith and another in the sixth. Fred Lewis homered in the first, John Buck hit one out in the fifth and Adam Lind drove in two with a fifth inning triple, then Alex Gonzalez scored on a sac fly in the sixth to stake Toronto to their 5-0 lead.

The Rays began their comeback in the seventh. Dioner Navarro scored on a double by Reid Brignac, who then scored on a single up the middle by Carl Crawford. Crawford came home on an infield single by Carlos Pena and Tampa Bay was within two, at 5-3.

The Rays got runners at the corners with two outs in the ninth, before mounting the rally that would give them the lead. Pena struck out looking for the second out, after being denied time by home plate umpire Angel Hernandez. Manager Joe Maddon, in a rare display of anger, was ejected by Hernandez for arguing the non-granting of time. John Jaso, pinch hitting for pitcher Grant Balfour(Tampa Bay had put DH Willy Aybar in at second base earlier in the game) walked, loading the bases for Ben Zobrist who drew a walk to force in Crawford. Sean Rodriguez cleared the bases with a double, driving in Longoria, Jaso and Zobrist. Then, after another walk by Blue Jays pitcher Kevin Gregg, his fifth of the inning put Navarro on base, Gregg was ejected by Hernandez after being pulled from the game by manager Cito Gaston.

In the bottom of the ninth, a two-out double by Vernon Wells drove home Lewis, but Juan Bautista flew out to center to end the game, with the Rays holding on for the 7-6 win.

Grant Balfour got the win in relief for Tampa Bay, he's now 1-1. Rafael Soriano picked up his 15th save of the season. Kevin Gregg took the loss for Toronto, fanning two and walking five in 2/3 of an inning, to lose his first decision of the year.

The Rays, 35-18, lead the A/L. East by 2 1/2 games over the Yankees. The third and final game at Toronto is tonight at 7:07pm EDT on 620 WDAE and the Rays Radio Network. You can also watch the game on Sun Sports and MLB.TV. Tampa Bay begins a three-game set in Miami against the Florida Marlins tomorrow night.
