TORONTO -- Sean Rodriguez watched the flight of the baseball after John McDonald ran into an Adam Russell heater in the 11th inning.
"I'm hoping Sam [Fuld] can catch it -- he's Superman," said Rodriguez of the Rays left fielder.
Alas, McDonald, according to Rays manager Joe Maddon "is their kryptonite," so Superman was not able to catch McDonald's blast. Once the ball cleared the wall in left, Toronto had a 6-4 win over Tampa Bay, with 23,192 watching at Rogers Centre.

Bumgarner's troubles continued Friday night. He matched the shortest start of his brief Giants career by lasting 2 2/3 innings in a 4-1 loss to the Atlanta Braves.
