MLB: Tampa Bay Rays at Los Angeles Angels Richard Mackson-USA TODAY Sports

Yesterday, the Tampa Bay Rays fell to the Los Angeles Angels in a well contested game. The Rays were shutout for the first six innings and trailed 2-0 in the seventh when Logan Morrison launched his 26th home run of the season to tie the game at two. Unfortunately for the Rays, the duo of Jumbo Diaz and Adam Kolarek allowed two runs to the Angels in the eighth inning.

The Rays would scratch across a run in the ninth and even had the bases loaded with one, but a double play would end the game.

The Rays are now 49-44 on the season and are second in the American League East, trailing the Red Sox by three games. Meanwhile, they hold the first Wild Card spot with a half game lead over the Yankees.
