ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) -- Johnny Damon lost a grand slam to a video review in the seventh inning, then hit a game-ending home run in the ninth that lifted the Tampa Bay Rays over the Seattle Mariners 8-7 Sunday.
Damon connected for a leadoff shot in the ninth on the first pitch from Dan Cortes (0-2), sending his 11th homer of the season into the right-field seats.
The Rays trailed 5-4 in the seventh when Damon launched a drive to right-center field. It was first ruled a home run, but the umpires changed the call to a three-run double after 2-minute, 45-second video review.
TV relays showed the reversal was correct and that the ball hit off the top of the wall.
