The Rays Tank: "And the beat goes on..."

There were no photos from yesterday's Rays-Mariners game. But there was this. - Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

Channeling Joe's Woodstock theme. Sure, it was two years before Woodstock, but close enough.

Back-to-back wins. Groovy.

Jake Odorizzi dominated yesterday, taking a no-hitter into the sixth, and though the Rays offense only managed three hits, the two runs they scored were enough to back Odorizzi's impressive outing.

Unfortunately yesterday wasn't all sunshine and butterflies, as Ben Zobrist dislocated his thumb and is likely headed to the DL with two weeks of recovery time needed. See the play here, as we now have fancy GIFs to help you rewatch the best (and worst) parts of games. DRaysBay, movin' on up.

With that turn of events, Cole Figeuroa got his call to the big leagues and will join the team in Anaheim today.

I'm jumping on Joe's themed bandwagon. Throwing up the peace signs and positive vibes all the way to LA.

If you want to relive Monday night's beauty of a game, Jonah Keri was kind enough to rehash the loss in full detail, reminding us that "the loss dropped the Rays to 16-23, the first time they'd fallen seven games under .500 since starting the 2011 season at 1-8."

Womp womp womp.

Keri continues, pinpointing the voodoo doll collection of Rays pitchers in a bitter Yankees fan's basement as the root of 2014's struggles thus far. He does mention that the silver lining in this season is this year's AL East being is the weakest in quite some time, allowing, despite the dismal start, the last place Rays to only be 3.5 games out of first.

David Price wasn't a fan of the feat (understandably):

But Dylan seems pretty pleased with his performance, and a wee bit sassy too:

Oh, and if you've never seen this...Happy Thursday:
