On April 3, 2013 — The Rays win for the first time this year in dramatic fashion, as Matt Joyce hits a walk-off homer off the Orioles’ Tommy Hunter for a 7 – 6 win. His heroics are necessitated by a rare blown save by Fernando Rodney, who had not allowed a run over his last 20 appearances for the Rays, dating back to last season, in addition to his perfect run in the 2013 World Baseball Classic.
