Rays Lose to Pirates 6-5

Not much to report from this game, as it wasn't even on the radio: 

  • The majority of Rays' pitchers had good outings yesterday, with Jeff Niemann, Kyle Farnsworth, Joel Peralta, Dane De La Rosa, Cory Wade, and Alex Cobb all pitching scoreless innings while striking out a batter. The damage came in the fourth inning when Mike Ekstrom was in the game; he managed to allow 4 hits, one walk, one homerun, and 5 runs (4 earned) while only getting two outs. Luckily for him, Maddon's on record saying to Marc Topkin that he's withholding judgement on his bullpen options until everyone has at least 1-2 appearances. Still, that's not a good start for someone competing for one of the few open bullpen spots.
  • Oh, and Jake McGee did decent in his outing, pitching one inning while letting up two hits and an unearned run.
  • On the offensive side, the main performers were Brignac, Zobrist, and Manny. Briggy and Zobrist both went 2-2 with a double (with Brignac's double apparently banged off the left field wall), while Manny had two hard-struck singles and scored from third-base on a wild pitch.

Today the Rays are playing the Orioles, and Andy Sonnanstine is getting the start. Hayhurst, Archer, Bush, Cabral, and Delaney are also all scheduled to pitch.
