Rays 4, Yankees 8: Tampa Bay Loses Game of Homerball

Brad Miller loses to Yankees On a hot day at New Yankee Stadium, the Bombers bombs proved too much for the Tampa Bay Millers. Tyler Austin and Aaron Judge got things rolling early for the Yankees, when they became the first teammates ever to homer in their first major league at bats in the same game, going back-to-back in the second inning off Matt Andriese. The Rays would answer, briefly taking the lead in the fourth off Masahiro Tanaka.

Tampa Bay Rays news and links: Evan Longoria wants to win, respectfully, now

Over the weekend, Marc Topkin published a piece in the Tampa Bay Times detailing the soon-to-be 31-year old Evan Longoria’s desire to win, as soon as possible. This is an incredibly understandable desire, and one we expect top flight athletes to have, particularly when their career is suddenly resurgent to levels we have not seen in a couple years. Longoria is back to the player he needs to be if he wants to remain in Hall of Fame contention, but there’s no guarantee that will continue. What was noteworthy in the piece, though, was the way Longoria will go about voicing his ideas for...

Rays 5 Blue Jays 7: Just not good enough

Tonight, the Rays took on the Blue Jays, a team that is in the hunt for a playoff spot. The Jays started the day with the bad news that Kevin Pillar, their talented center fielder, had been placed on the DL with a thumb injury. We certainly know the feeling!

Early Innings: Teams Trade Runs The Jays took a 2-0 lead in the first, thanks to a ball Mikie Mahtook misplayed into a triple; a sac fly, and an Encarnacion home run. While Mahtook’s fielding...
