Rays were able to escape some jams, and get enough offense to win another series last night. The team's new #2 hitter against right-handed pitching, Brad Miller, went 2-4 with a 2B and a SB.

They also got a first for their 2016 season:

Also, congrats to Enny on the first of (hopefully) many!


- Corey Dickerson talks about his approach, mentality at the plate, and going from Coors to the Trop.

- Matt Stein at Sports Talk Florida has a number of Rays notes, including Brad Miller talking about moving to the #2 spot in the order and how Kevin Kiermaier is his favorite player.

- Bill Chastain reports that both Brad Boxberger and Alex Cobb continue to make good progress on their road back.

- Chris Archer did something fairly new, and threw 20 change-ups for the first time in his career. Archer mixing in another pitch could be something to watch going forward.

- The Rays have 4 players who have more HRs than the entire Altanta Braves team. The Braves are bad. Really, really bad.  Jeff Sullivan dives into just how bad.
