Tampa Bay Rays News and Links: Rays fall behind Oakland in Wild Card chase

A 15-1 loss to the Astros leads to the Rays falling back in the playoff chase

MLB: Tampa Bay Rays at Houston Astros John Glaser-USA TODAY Sports

The Tampa Bay Rays were shelled by the Houston Astros last night, 15-1. With the loss, and an Oakland victory, the Rays are now a game back of the Athletics for the second Wild Card spot. The Rays lone offensive contribution came from the bat of Joey Wendle, as he launched his first home run of his injury plagued season.

The Rays will look to bounce back tonight with Ryan Yarbrough taking the mound against Gerrit Cole.
