Baldelli gives Rays 2-1 lead

Had a good feeling about Rocco Baldelli all day.

Something about Baldelli getting the hit that delivers the pennant.

That could be true if this 2-1 lead holds up.

Baldelli singled home Willy Aybar to give the Rays a 2-1 lead in the fifth.

Aybar opened the inning with a double to left field off Jon Lester.

The Rays could have had more runs, though. B.J. Upton lined out to short with runners on second and third to end the inning.

Will that haunt the Rays?

We’ll see.
