Forsythe, who finished 2-for-3 with a walk, hit the latter of back-to-back jacks in the fourth inning off of Wei-Yin Chen. He's gone yard 11 times this season with 41 RBI while cobbling a productive .283/.369/.443 batting line. Forsythe entered play Sunday mashing lefties to the tune of a .949 OPS, so it was no surprise to see him victimize Chen.

The Rays simply could not capitalize on Forsythe's effort, as he was the only Rays batter to reach base more than once. He has notched multi-hit efforts in five of his last seven games and owns a productive .288/.364/.440 triple-slash line with seven home runs and 31 RBI.

Jun 15 - 10:44 PM

Logan Forsythe homered off Fernando Rodney in the top of the ninth to lead the Rays to a 1-0 win over the Mariners on Friday.

It was Forsythe's career-high seventh homer after he hit six each of the previous three seasons. He's playing much more than expected thanks to his hot start offensively and the Rays' injuries, and while he doesn't figure to keep hitting .282, the power is rather legit. He's a fringy mixed-league option at second base.
