WATCH: Rays' Logan Morrison unleashes bat flip of the year following clutch homer

The Rays have been quietly creeping up the standings and putting some pressure on the Red Sox atop the AL East, but their four-game winning streak was snapped Sunday against the Angels.

The Halos jumped out to an early 2-0 lead, but Tampa Bay first baseman Logan Morrison tied it with a two-run home run in the seventh. Morrison then unleashed the biggest bat flip of the season. Check this out:

Hey, when you're among the league leaders in dingers -- that was LoMo's 26th of the season -- and you just crushed a tying home run, you're allowed to flip the heck out of your bat. Don't like the bat flip? Don't give up the homer.

The Angels got the last laugh, though, with C.J. Cron's two-run homer in the eighth the decisive blow.
