Joey Knight's takeaways from Thursday's Rays-Orioles game

Joey Knight's takeaways from Thursday's Rays-Orioles game

The batting-order demotion (to sixth) hasn't helped Kevin Kiermaier, whose plate struggles are becoming painful to watch. The Gold Glove center­fielder was hitless in his four at-bats Thursday against the Orioles, extending his latest swoon to 1-for-22.

A Mallex Appreciation

A Mallex Appreciation

The Rays outfield is looking better since July, and we can thank Mallex Smith Think back to the eve of the 2018 season. Just before Opening Day. The Rays surprised most of us by trading away, in short order, (Corey Dickerson - 120 OPS+) and right fielder (Steven Souza - 121 OPS+). Who would be playing corner outfield? They were looking at Carlos Gomez (32 years old and not a consistent, everyday contributor since 2014) and Mallex Smith (153 career games with an OPS+ of just 86) as the two replacements. Outfield of Pain Flash-forward to early June. Kevin Kiermaier had been on the...

Romo double duty stops NY

Sergio Romo relieved in the eighth inning, shifted to third base when Jonny Venters replaced him in the ninth, then struck out Brett Gardner to end the game with two on, giving the Tampa Bay Rays a 3-2 win over the New York Yankees yesterday in St. Petersburg, Fla.Six pitchers combined on a seven-hitter for the Rays, as New York has lost just two series since May, both against Tampa Bay.

View from the Catwalk: A grand afternoon in St. Pete

Rays history is made, Carlos Gomez has been good, and Kevin Kiermaier is injured again Prior to the bottom of the 9th inning of Sunday afternoon’s Citrus Series finale, the Tampa Bay Rays had played lousily. They had showed signs of life, but way too late as they fell by one run in the first two games of the series. With things looking dim once again on Sunday, the Rays rallied from a 4-1 deficit to load the bases with two outs, and now down, 4-2. Daniel Robertson stepped in and made history as he launched the first walk-off grand slam in franchise history to give the Rays their first...

Rays 5, Marlins 6: Welcome Back Boys

Rays 5, Marlins 6: Welcome Back Boys

One great inning can’t make up for eight lackluster ones. If you’re a fan of limited early offense and missed opportunities, but also love late-inning runs that’ll break your heart out, you were probably a giant fan of this Rays-Marlins game. A Rays’ loss is quite a way to return from an All-Star Break. Also Kevin Kiermaier might be injured again? It’s impossible to say. The Rays and the Marlins traded a run each in the early innings of the game, then settled into a weird sort of rut. The game sure started nice, with a hustle double on a soft liner by Kevin Kiermaier. Hech knocked...
