The Rays Tank: Eleven Shutouts

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

Yesterday's loss marks shutout number eleven for the Rays.

June isn’t even over yet and the Rays have already been shutout eleven times this season.

Yikes.

If you want to relive yesterday’s abysmal performance, check out Brett’s recap here.

Today, the Rays welcome the Astros to the Trop for a four-game series. Chris Archer will be looking to bounce back from his last rocky outing in Houston.

Jeremy Hellickson is not quite ready to return to the Rays rotation yet and appears to be needing at least one more rehab start.

Last night, Joe Maddon and Evan Longoria attended the Tampa Bay Sports Commission's 'Sneaker Soiree' and showed off their kicks.
