The week did not start great, as the Rays dropped four of five in Toronto. They rebounded to take two of three from Texas. The Rays hold the second wild card spot, half a game behind Toronto and a game and a half up on Seattle.

The final home stand of the season continues tonight with the first of three against the Astros, followed by four against the Blue Jays starting on Thursday.
