Lobaton has walk-off triple in Rays' win over Jays
TAMPA BAY 5, TORONTO 4

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) -- Catcher Jose Lobaton had a
game-ending triple, two RBIs and a big RBO for the Tampa Bay
Rays on Friday night in a 5-4 victory over the Toronto Blue
Jays.

RBO?

Runs Blocked Out. Rays manager Joe Maddon used to keep track of
them when he managed in the minor leagues.

With the potential go-ahead run on third base in the ninth
inning, Lobaton blocked a pitch in the dirt keeping the Maicer
Izturis on third.

"I hope I can keep blocking and making triples," said Lobaton,
who was showered with Gatorade, a whipped-cream pie and even ice
cream after driving in Yunel Escobar with his opposite-field
triple.

"I didn't know I got ice cream for triples," he said. "I'll hit
more triples, but I'm happy with doubles."

Maddon, an ex-catcher, was most happy with the block of Fernando
Rodney's pitch in the dirt.

"When (pitchers) are not confident in their catcher to be able
to do that, then that's when they hang pitches," he said. "But
when was the last time you heard of a catcher hitting a walk-off
triple?"

Lobaton's triple came off Aaron Loup (4-6) after Escobar walked.
Lobaton had three hits in the Rays' third straight win, which
pulled them to within one game of the AL-East leading Boston Red
Sox.

Rodney (5-3) gave up two hits to start the ninth but worked out
of the jam, one of Toronto's many squandered chances. The Blue
Jays had 13 hits, including leadoff hits in the seventh, eighth
and ninth innings, but left 11 men on base.

"We had the lead, we gave it up," said Toronto manager John
Gibbons. "Had plenty of opportunities, couldn't get it done.
That's why they're at the top and we're at the bottom. It's
pretty simple."

The Blue Jays had tied it in the eighth when, with runners on
second and third and one out, Anthony Gose hit a grounder to
shortstop. Escobar's throw was off line to home plate and Brett
Lawrie scored.

In his fifth start this season against Tampa Bay, R.A. Dickey
gave up six hits and four runs over seven innings. He had
pitched a two-hit shutout here on June 26.

Adam Lind, Edward Encarnacion and Gose drove in runs against
Jeremy Hellickson to put Toronto up, 3-1. Playing in his first
game since being recalled up from Triple-A Buffalo, Gose bounced
a two-out single up the middle after a triple by Josh Thole.

Matt Joyce cut the Blue Jays' lead to 3-2 with a home run off
Dickey in the sixth. It was Joyce's first home run since June
15, ending a career-long span of 43 homerless games.

"I feel like it's been years. I almost forgot what that felt
like," said Joyce. "Dickey was tough. You're just trying to stay
on it as long as possible and hopefully you run into one. It
kind of got us going a little bit."

Escobar and Sam Fuld drove in runs to lift the Rays to a 4-3
lead in the seventh, chasing Dickey.

"Tonight for me was tough because I had a good knuckleball,"
Dickey said. "This is a good place for me. It's not often you
give up eight baserunners and four of them score. A very bizarre
night. We should have won that game in regulation."

Hellickson pitched six innings, giving up nine hits and three
earned runs.

"I gave `em a chance to win," said Hellickson, who is 0-3 in his
last four starts. "It's amazing what these guys can do when you
keep `em within striking distance."

Izturis had three of Toronto's 13 hits. The Blue Jays led off
each of the last three innings with hits, but left 11 men on
base.

NOTES: Only two other catchers (Cincinnati's Dioner Navarro and
Minnesota's Ryan Doumit) have hit walk-off triples since 1994,
and both were within the last year. ... The Blue Jays activated
LHP J.A. Happ from the bereavement list and placed INF Munenori
Kawasaki on the paternity list. Happ, Saturday night's scheduled
starter, was hit in the head by Desmond Jennings' drive on May
7, and will be pitching for the first time at Tropicana Field
since getting hurt. ... Wil Myers was the Rays' DH for the
second consecutive game. Regular DH Luke Scott is out of the
lineup due to back spasms. ... Toronto RHP Steve Delabar
(shoulder) resumed playing catch. ... Tampa Bay manager Joe
Maddon is hopeful that Jennings (broken left middle finger) will
return next week.
