ST. PETERSBURG, FLA. - Well, did you expect anything different?

With the series up for grabs, the Toronto Blue Jays did what they always do in these parts — lose the finale.

They lost another tough one as the Tampa Bay Rays pulled out a walkoff victory, just as they did on Friday.

For the second time in the series it was catcher Jose Lobatron that supplied the winning run in the Rays’ 2-1 triumph to deny the Jays from winning a series at Tropicana Field.

On Friday, Lobatron tripled home the winning run in the ninth inning. This time, he drilled a one-out home run to right field in the 10th off Brad Lincoln.

The Jays came oh-so close to winning when in the top of the ninth with two out, Edwin Encarnacion drilled a shot into the left field corner that hit the top of the wall and bounced back for a double. An inch or two higher and it would have bounced over the wall for a home run.

Local boy makes good — that was one of the possible themes for the day.
