Rays 1 Marlins 0: More injuries than runs for the Rays, but it’s still a win

Citrus Series game two is a close one The Marlins may have the worst record in baseball, but they certainly proved difficult to beat tonight. The Rays did emerge victorious, but Marlins pitchers managed to hold their offense to a meek whimper. The Rays had a first inning threat against the Marlins José Ureña. Ji -Man Choi reached on a hard ground ball that slipped through the infield, and Brandon Lowe finally got a hit after several games of utter futility. Yandy Diaz hit a patented hard grounder deep to third but was thrown out to end the inning. Ryne Stanek opened for the Rays, and he...

Rays Takeaways: Raise your hand if you've ever heard of a 'Platinum Sombrero'

Brandon Lowe struck out five times in Wednesday's game after getting an infield single in his first at-bat. Someone far smarter than me determined that if striking out four times in a single game is a "Golden Sombrero," than striking out five times is a "Platinum

The outfielder was off to a strong start before injuring his thumb The Tampa Bay Rays were victorious last night, sealing another series victory as they defeated the Arizona Diamondbacks, 6-3. The Rays improved to 23-12 on the season and maintained a two game lead over the New York Yankees for the division lead. Brandon Lowe had an excellent day at the plate as he homered and doubled. Lowe now leads all qualified MLB rookies in fWAR (1.6). Yandy Diaz and Mike Zunino also had doubles for the Rays offense, meanwhile Kevin Kiermaier snagged two bases. Pitching wise, the only Rays pitcher to...

ST. PETERSBURG : Brandon Lowe started in rightfield Tuesday for the Rays, his first assignment of the season on the grass. No big deal, he was just happy to be playing. Then he moved to second base after six innings. Didn't matter, he is always willing to do

Rays 6, Diamondbacks 3: Highs and Lowes

House Lowe combined for four hits, Beeks provided stellar innings in bulk, and the Rays won again Following last night’s 12-1 walloping against Arizona, the Rays hoped to seal the series win in tonight’s contest. Ryne Stanek opened for the Rays and delivered a 1-2-3 top of the first, striking out the first two batters he faced. For the Diamondbacks, it was rookie Taylor Clarke making his first major league start. But second baseman right fielder Brandon Lowe didn’t allow him to settle in, taking his first pitch 405 ft to dead center for his team leading 8th home run of the year. Your...

Brandon Lowe showed just exactly why he won Rookie of the Month The day he was officially named American League Rookie of the Month for the opening month of the 2019 season, Brandon Lowe went out and proved why that was such a good decision, blasting somehow blooping a home run over the right field fence in Kansas City to break a 1-1 tie in the top of the ninth inning and ensure the Rays didn’t leave Kauffman with a series loss. The Rays now head to Baltimore for what would appear to be a winnable series but considering the Rip Van Winkle-like nap the Rays bats appear to have fallen...

Rays 3 Royals 1: What? You doubted?

Rays get clutch hit from AL Rookie of the month; Morton pitches a gem The Rays badly needed a win today to get the taste of double header defeat (which I’ve heard tastes a bit like chicken) out of their mouths. And thanks to AL Rookie of the Month Brandon Lowe, they did indeed get that victory. The Royals starter was Danny Duffy, who has that “soft tossing lefty” aura that will make any Rays fan nervous (yes, I know his fastball can hit 93 but his reliance on offspeed stuff and easy throwing motion give me that soft-tossing vibe). The players may have changed but can any Rays fan...

Lowe’s 9th inning homer keeps Royals from series win in 3-1 loss

School Day at the K is, yet again, a dud of a baseball game School Day at the K has not been friendly to the Royals in years past. There was the epic 17-3 drubbing in 2007 at the hands of the A’s. Then there was 2016, when the Nationals beat down the defending world champs 13-2. This year, the crowd of 23,343 (mostly school-aged) fans weren’t treated to a blowout, but they were treated to 3-1 loss thanks to a 9th inning Brandon Lowe two-run home run. The loss allowed the Rays to split the four-game set after being swept by the Royals in yesterday’s doubleheader. While there were a...
