Tampa Bay Rays News and Links: A Series Victory in Boston

A Mother’s Day victory and onto Cleveland

MLB: Tampa Bay Rays at Boston Red Sox Bob DeChiara-USA TODAY Sports

Yesterday afternoon, in what turned out to be the longest nine inning against in Tampa Bay Rays history as they completed the game in just over four and a half hours!

The Rays scored 11 times, thanks mostly due to a seven run ninth inning. Matt Andriese went five innings and was backed by a strong bullpen performance, with a notable shoutout to Erasmo Ramirez who pitched two clean inning. 2013 first round pick, Ryne Stanek, made his major league debut in the eighth inning, recording an out and allowing a basehit.

There were several offensive standouts for the Rays as six of them had multi-hit games. Corey Dickerson went 4-6, his American League leading 16th multi-hit game of the year. Evan Longoria, Rickie Weeks, Tim Beckham, Kevin Kiermaier, and Jesus Sucre all had two hits apiece while Steven Souza blasted his 5th home run of the season.
