Martin Fennelly's takeaways from the Rays' 5-3 loss to the Angels Saturday

• This just in: Charlie Morton is carbon-based. He is human. He had been unbeatable this season at 8-0 with a 2.10 ERA. So much for that. The Angels jumped Morton for three runs in the second. He left after six innings down 4-3.• Sometimes too much hustle is a bad thing.

Rays 3, Angels 5: Dog days of June

A Rays rally comes up short. On bark at the park day, the Rays refused to roll over and play dead. They battled back from a four run deficit, before coming up on the losing side of a 5-3 dogfight. It was Charlie Morton’s first loss in four dog years. With the club sporting Devil Ray throwbacks, Morton was bedeviled by Angels not named Trout and Ohtani. The big two were 0 for 6 with 3 strikeouts against Morton. The rest of the lineup were like yippy little Yorkshire terriers, pestering the Rays righty throughout his six innings of work, scoring four times on five hits. Morton also walked...

Series Preview: Angels @ Rays (Opening Time)

Series Preview: Angels @ Rays (Opening Time)

The Battle of the Openers Begins Angels (33-35) @ Rays (41-26) I asked Ashley MacLennan of DRays Bay to give us some insight on the Rays: The Rays are headed into this weekend’s 4-game series having gone 6-4 over their last 10, and dropping two of three to the A’s in an home series to start the week. In fact, the location of the Trop is likely a boon to the Angels, as the Rays have and 18-16 record at home as opposed to their very strong 23-10 road numbers. The pitching rotation is up in the air right now, but I’d expect to see both Blake Snell and Charlie Morton used in this...

Charlie Morton is a fine wine

Charlie Morton is a fine wine

...and this year, he decant lose When the Rays gave Charlie Morton the richest free agent contract in club history, he was coming off a special two year run with the Houston Astros, which included a World Series championship in 2017. In said championship, Morton pitched the final four innings to close out game seven in a Madison Bumgarner-esque fashion. It was the perfect cap to the beginning of his career resurgence. Morton was even better in 2018 in terms of run prevention thanks in part to a better strikeout rate, but went backward in FIP due to a slightly elevated walk rate and a home...

With last night’s win over the Oakland Athletics, the Rays lead the New York Yankees by half a game For the first time since May 18th, the Tampa Bay Rays stand alone in first place in the American League East: Charlie Morton delivered a sparkling seven inning outing.

Out since late April, Joey Wendle is nearing his return Last night, the Tampa Bay Rays shutout the Detroit Tigers, 4-0, to snap their four game losing streak.
