  • David Price will NOT be starting tomorrow as he has a minor case of shoulder soreness/ohshittheRangersagain. Chris Archer will be making the spot start
  • The Rays are 22-13 against the AL West this season and these are the last three games against the division. This series is the only break in a stretch of 25 games where the Rays are not playing an AL East opponent.
  • Fernando Rodney has allowed the fewest extra base hits in the American League (min 50 IP). He is tied with Craig Kimbrel for the lead in all of baseball but has also faced 54 more batters than Kimbrel.
  • Score 5 runs: Rays are 45-6 when doing so
  • Rays won 12 of their first 16 one-run games and have won just 3 of their last 14.
  • The last time the Rays lost by more than two runs was on August 4th.
  • The Rays have won 11 of their last 19 regular-season match-ups against the Rangers
  • Rays pitchers still lead the American League in ERA (3.26), strikeouts (1,135), and opponents' batting average (.231). If they hold that trend, they'll become the first team since the 1999 Red Sox (best team, best fans!) to do so
  • The Rays have quietly taken over the stolen base lead in the American League at 118. If they hold it, it will be the fifth straight season in which they have done so . Carl Crawford who?
  • Using rWAR, Ben Zobrist is the AL's most valuable player since the start of the 2009 season. MVZ!
