Yesterday was a fun way to cap off the first half of the 2017 season for Rays fans.

Chris Archer was excellent in a solid pitching duel with former Rays ace, David Price. Unfortunately, Archer gave up a two run homer late to give Boston the lead, but the Rays offense was able to come back against a very good Boston bullpen to tie the game.

Brad Miller in his third game back, provided the big blow as he blasted a two run, eighth inning home run to give the Rays a 5-3 lead. Alex Colome would lock it down to give the Rays a series victory over the American League East division leaders.

Meanwhile in the Futures Game, Brent Honeywell was amazing as he displayed all of his exceptional pitches and he just baffled some of the top prospects in the game. He pitched two scoreless innings and racked up four strikeouts. For his efforts, he was named the Futures Game MVP.
