Pena reaches 100-RBI plateau

Pena reaches 100-RBI plateau

BALTIMORE -- Carlos Pena drew a bases-loaded walk in the seventh inning of the Rays' 4-2 win over the Orioles against Baltimore right-hander Rocky Cherry to drive in his 100th run of the season.

Pena, who drove in a team-record 121 runs in 2007, became just the third player in Rays history to have two 100-RBI seasons. Aubrey Huff turned the trick from 2003-04 and Fred McGriff did it from 1999-2000.

For Pena, the bases-loaded walk was his ninth of the season, which improved the Major League record he set on Friday night; data for this record first became available in 1988.

"It's nice, it's so nice and satisfying [to reach 100 RBIs for a second straight season]," Pena said. "I'm so happy, so grateful. It just basically signals that I'm able to contribute to our cause, to our vision, and I'm just glad I'm part of what we've got going on."
