The Tampa Bay Rays lost for the second night in a row to the Seattle Mariners last night as the Mariners tallied seven runs en route to a 7-4 victory.
Diego Castillo surrendered a two run first inning home run to Kyle Seager. The Rays were able to put up two runs in the second to tie the game and then two more in the fourth to take a 4-2 lead, but that would be it for the offense and Seattle would come storming back over the next several frames to take the lead and eventual victory.
Jalen Beeks struggles continued as he allowed four runs over his fine innings on the mound. Hoby Milner allowed a run over two innings during his season debut for the Rays. Following the game, Milner was optioned to Triple-A Durham and the Rays selected the contract of RHP Aaron Slegers.
This afternoon, the Rays will look to get back in the win column and avoid the sweep as they’ll send Charlie Morton to the mound at 1:10.
