A's rally to nip Rays

BY foxsports • July 26, 2011

Conor Jackson hit a two-run double in the seventh inning and the Oakland Athletics rallied from three runs down to beat the Tampa Bay Rays 7-5 on Monday night.

Cliff Pennington homered for the second time in four games and David DeJesus added two hits, including an RBI single to start the A's uprising against Tampa Bay's bullpen.

Ben Zobrist homered and doubled twice for the Rays, who lost for the third time in four games and dropped to 4-7 since the All-Star break.

Brian Fuentes (2-8), the second of five A's pitchers, worked two-thirds of an inning for his first win since April 27. Andrew Bailey gave up two-out double and walk but retired Matt Joyce on a called third strike for his 12th save in 14 tries.
