Tampa Bay Rays News and Links: 1,172 Days

The Rays finally have a walk-off HR, another trade with Seattle and Sean Rodriguez poetry

MLB: Milwaukee Brewers at Tampa Bay Rays Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

Yesterday afternoon, the Tampa Bay Rays just narrowly avoided a sweep at the hands of the Milwaukee Brewers as the hard fought bout ended when in the bottom of the ninth, Steven Souza drove a pitch into the left field seats for the Rays first walk-off home run since May 22nd, 2014 (1,172 days).

Chris Archer provided six solid innings, making a mistake in the sixth inning and ended up being a the Brewers lone run. The bullpen meanwhile, continued to impress since it’s revampingness prior to the trade deadline.

The Rays are now 58-55, 5.5 games back of the division leading Boston Red Sox and now .5 games back of the second Wild Card spot.
