Pena became the first player to homer in six straight games since Frank Thomas did it for Oakland Sept. 5-11, 2006. Pena has seven homers during the streak, giving him 15 this season and an AL-leading 131 since joining the Rays in 2007 — four more than Alex Rodriguez.
Pena connected off Marlins right-hander Ricky Nolasco as he continues to emerge from a season-long slump. He began the night batting .196.
