The Rays are winners once again, having finally ended their eleven game losing streak.
Here, from Rays Radio, is audio from manager Kevin Cash (sound from Nick Franklin and Blake Snell in their article).
Mark Topkin wrote about how Kevin Cash’s job is not in danger, yet, and about how the Rays don’t react in a knee-jerk fashion. Quotes from Evan Longoria and Archer in support of Cash.
I’m sure this wasn’t the only superstitious attempt to end the streak. But it seems to be the one that worked. #science
