Rays get two back with homer in 4th

With the Lightning in the Stanley Cup finals, it's only natural that a Tampa Bay player named Franklin would get electric. Nick Franklin, not Ben, hit a 2-run homer down the right field line, and the Rays trail the Angels 4-3 in the top of the 4th. Follow live

Angels @Angels

A man of the people that Mike Trout is. The Halo center fielder gives out his 13th souvenir of the year with a 3-run homer to left.

Big fish, big bat, big homer

ESPN's Paul Finebaum on OTL: "I've never seen anything quite like this. The people won. The little people. The average guy on the street. Joe Schmo was finally heard."
