The Rays lost last night, as happens sometimes during a long season. This time it was to the Rangers, by a score of 8-3. Ryan Yarbrough got a little roughed up, though the hits he allowed were not particularly hard hit for the most part. It was one of those nights. The loss dropped the Rays back under .500, putting them in a four way tie for second place in the AL East
