Not wanting to fall 2.5 behind the Boston Red Sox, who won their contest last night, the Tampa Bay Rays came from behind to defeat Atlanta, 7-6, in extra innings.
After getting off the schneid and snapping a seven-game skid on Wednesday, the Tampa Bay Rays will go for their first series win in three tries tonight at Tropicana Field.
In spite of a fantastic big league debut by Wander Franco and another great outing by Collin McHugh, the Tampa Bay Rays were done in by the top team in the AL East on Tuesday, 9-5.
After a sub-optimal 1-6 road trip, which included four walk-off losses, the Tampa Bay Rays look to get off the schneid when they open a three-game series against the Boston Red Sox, at home.
Clearly in need of a spark after dropping six games in a row, the Tampa Bay Rays are preparing to call up top shortstop Wander Franco before the beginning of their upcoming series against the Red Sox.
