Have a night, Jose Siri.

The Tampa Bay Rays outfielder did it all in the ninth inning, first making a game-saving catch in the top half of the frame to take a two-run home run away from Oakland Athletics second baseman Zack Gelof.

Gelof hit the ball with an exit velocity of 107.7 mph. It had an expected batting average of .810 and would've been a home run in 24 of MLB's 30 stadiums.

With the game remaining tied at 3-3, Siri stepped up to the plate with a runner on third base and ripped a walk-off RBI single to catapult the Rays to a 4-3 victory.

The walk-off hit was the first of Siri's four-year career.
