MLB: Baltimore Orioles at Tampa Bay Rays Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

Last night’s win for the Rays marked the first time they’d won three consecutive contests in nearly a month, when they beat Boston on June 8.

The Rays took the lead in the first on two first inning runs, then gave up the lead in the sixth, but then took it right back IN DRAMATIC FASHION.

The Rays look to extend their winning streak to four tonight with All-Star Charlie Morton getting the ball.

Remembering Tyler Skaggs

The Angels pitcher tragically passed away in Texas yesterday.

Skaggs, who was just 27, got married this past offseason. A devastating, abrupt end to what was a fourishing life and career. The details surrounding his death remain unknown.
