Last night, the Tampa Bay Rays seemed on their way to another late inning loss.
Alex Cobb was absolutely fantastic and held a no-hitter for most of the game. He would shutdown the Pirates offense for eight innings before yielding to Alex Colome, who promptly gave up two runs in the ninth to tie the game. The Rays offense would answer back immediately though and scored two runs of their own in the 10th inning. Tommy Hunter would work a perfect bottom half of the inning to close it out.
The Rays victory improves their record to 41-38 and they’re now three games back in the division race, trailing the new division leaders, the Boston Red Sox. The Rays also moved back into a tie for the second wild card spot.
