After sweeping the Baltimore Orioles thanks to a huge offensive outburst, the Tampa Bay Rays ride a wave of momentum into Dunedin, where they will face the Blue Jays in a weekend wrap-around series starting Friday.
The Tampa Bay Rays look to start a new winning streak this afternoon after dropping their first game in almost a week on Friday to the Athletics, 2-1. Tampa Bay lost for only the second time in the last 11 road games, while both losses were by one run. Both also were in walk-off fashion.
In an uneven game filled with miscues, gaffes, and weird plays, the Tampa Bay Rays dropped their third straight game (and second to those Massholes) in extra innings, 6-5.
With the offseason and Spring Training in the rearview mirror, the Tampa Bay Rays look to kick off their defense of the American League crown, when they open the three-game Opening Series against the Marlins in Miami, on Thursday.
The Tampa Bay Rays reportedly bolstered the pitching staff on Friday, adding not one but two quality arms in veterans Rich Hill and Collin McHugh.
