A high-quality TweetCap for you boys and girls tonight. Tonight’s recap will be way better than tonight’s game, and far less of a bummer.

#Rays lineup: Forsythe 2b, Kiermaier cf, Longoria 3b, Miller 1b, Franklin SS, Mahtook LF, Souza RF, Shaffer DH, Maile c, Odorizzi p— Marc Topkin (@TBTimes_Rays) September 12, 2016
#Rays Morrison is a pending free agent, so question is whether he just rehab, or surgery and rehab, which, of course, as he said "sucks"— Marc Topkin (@TBTimes_Rays) September 12, 2016
I already miss that guy...
.@JakeOdorizzi is 1-0 with a 2.35 ERA vs. @BlueJays this year (4 starts). #RaysUp pic.twitter.com/HaJiHd3WvL— Tampa Bay Rays (@RaysBaseball) September 12, 2016
Is Jake Odorizzi the ace now? yes
Nice job by #Rays Odorizzi to work around 2-out doubles the last 2 innings to keep this game scoreless after 3.— Neil Solondz (@neilsolondz) September 12, 2016
Hey look! Souza made a heads-up baseball play. He is a smart player and all of you animals saying that he isn’t are animals.
HE MAKES THE CATCH!— Tampa Bay Rays (@RaysBaseball) September 13, 2016
⚾️ @SouzaJr crashes into the wall in RF and still hangs on!
Even the home crowd appreciates the effort!#RaysUp
#Rays Souza with a catch crashing into the RF wall to end 4th, a little shaken up but jogs in. Still 0-0 with #BlueJays— Marc Topkin (@TBTimes_Rays) September 13, 2016
Tough as nails, @SouzaJr. #RaysUp https://t.co/5F1Kn6TP95— Tampa Bay Rays (@RaysBaseball) September 13, 2016
In the sixth, the Blue Jays broke through...
.@JoeyBats19, that one is OUT OF HERE!!! Gives the @BlueJays a 2-0 lead. #OurMoment pic.twitter.com/KxStk7bhx5— Blue Jays (@BlueJays) September 13, 2016
By the way, #OurMoment is a garbage hashtag, imo. But the Blue Jays definitely aren’t garbage. The Rays quickly answered:
Longoria homers right back for #Rays, his 32nd— Marc Topkin (@TBTimes_Rays) September 13, 2016
Anything you can do I can do better says #Rays Brad Miller. Back to back, and it's 2-2.— Neil Solondz (@neilsolondz) September 13, 2016
Traded zeros for 5.@BlueJays scored a pair on @JoeyBats19's 18th HR.@EVAN3LONGORIA AND BRAD GO BACK TO BACK!— Tampa Bay Rays (@RaysBaseball) September 13, 2016
Game tied! #RaysUp
BTW, that's now 196 HR for the #Rays, three shy of the franchise record, and 13 in the first 5 games of this road trip.— Neil Solondz (@neilsolondz) September 13, 2016
Alas, it wasn’t meant to be. In the eighth inning, on the first pitch of Brad Boxberger’s relief outing:
Carrera takes one swing and puts the @BlueJays back on top, 3-2!!! #OurMoment pic.twitter.com/NbpbtFMq8p— Blue Jays (@BlueJays) September 13, 2016
What a dumb hashtag that I irrationally hate.
Oh well, eighth inning heroics by the Jays aside, this honestly was not a terrible game. The fact that Brad Miller now has 28 home runs is absolutely incredible. Go Brad Miller. Keep on keeping on.
Tonight’s confusing tweet of the day:
One player has more career HR as a 3B than @Evan3Longoria's 21: A-Rod (26). #RaysUp— Tampa Bay Rays (@RaysBaseball) September 13, 2016

Alex Rodriguez has only 26 home runs, apparently. The third base position is seriously going through a power outage.
Hope you enjoyed reading this exactly as much as I enjoyed watching this game. I’m taking my frustration out on you!
