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...
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.
In the sixth, the Blue Jays broke through...
By the way, #OurMoment is a garbage hashtag, imo. But the Blue Jays definitely aren’t garbage. The Rays quickly answered:
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
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:
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:
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!
