Angels blank Rays, 4-0

The ball soared through Tropicana’s Field enclosed air as Kole Calhoun gave it chase. If Colby Rasmus’ drive cleared the yellow line encasing the outfield, Tampa Bay would take the lead in Tuesday’s seventh inning. If Calhoun caught it, the Angels and their starter, Matt Shoemaker, would be one...

CLEVELAND: Danny Salazar racked up strikeouts but had trouble keeping the ball in the ballpark in a 6-4 loss to the Tampa Bay Rays on Tuesday night at Progressive Field.The Rays smacked five home runs, four solo shots off Salazar.Salazar, a power pitcher, has often been one to pitch with a higher-than-normal number of “true outcomes,” meaning home runs, walks or strikeouts. That was taken to the extreme Tuesday night. He began the night striking out four of the first five batters he faced. But then the home runs came in a hurry.

Rays 3, Royals 7: Okay then.

The Rays do everything wrong tonight against a slumping Royals team. The Royals scored 3 runs in the third inning, two of the coming on a three-base-error by Kevin Kiermaier, who is having a crazy hard time this season.

The Rays struck out 10 times by the sixth inning. The Royals, who had scored 4 runs over their last three games against the Indians, scored 7 runs tonight. Blake Snell once again only went 5 innings,...

Series Preview: Rays Head to Toronto

Rays look to pile onto the rough start by the Blue Jays While the Rays are coming off a disappointing series in Baltimore they can comfort themselves with the thought that at least they are not the Blue Jays. The 6 - 16 Blue Jays managed to lose twice yesterday, swept by the Cardinals in a double header. Injuries have not helped. Currently they have Josh Donaldson, Troy Tulowitzki, Aaron Sanchez, and J.A. Happ on the disabled list. Aaron Sanchez is scheduled to return this weekend, but that’s still leave some very important pieces out of action. For the Rays, Colby Rasmus should make his...
