Rays 7, Athletics 6
Frank Thomas (right) is congratulated after his two-run shot. (Ben Margot/AP)
Frank Thomas hit his first two homers since rejoining the A's 30 games ago and collected three hits and three RBIs, but they weren't enough to keep the A's from a loss to the Rays. Emil Brown hit his fifth homer of the season in the second inning.
