For the second time in team history, the Tampa Bay Rays went back-to-back-to-back at home as James Loney, Wil Myers and Sam Fuld pulled off the feat Monday.

This time, the feat was done against the Toronto Blue Jays, who came into the game on an 11-game winning streak.

Not only did the back-to-back-to-back feat help give the Rays the win, it also put the Blue Jays back at the bottom of the division.

It was something much-needed for the Rays as they had previously lost 10 of their last 15 games.

While it's only one game in the grand scheme of things, it's still one the Rays badly needed to win.

Loney started it off in the second inning with his solo blast to lead things off. After Myers went deep for his first blast in front of the home crowd, Fuld followed up with his solo shot to make it three in a row.

The Rays are now 4-4 against the Blue Jays this year and are looking to make a move in the standings before the all-star break.

Over the next three weeks, the Rays will face the Tigers, Astros, White Sox, Twins and Astros again.

Outside of the Tigers, it's just the schedule the Rays need to make a good dent in their AL East deficit.

For Toronto, it was Munenori Kawasaki that helped start their 11-game winning streak with a two-run double in the 10th inning to beat the White Sox on June 11.

Tampa Bay fans are hoping the back-to-back-to-back dingers will do the same for them.
