Rays 4 Angels 6: Dang this one hurts

Rays 4 Angels 6: Dang this one hurts

Jayne Kamin-Oncea-USA TODAY Sports Did some evil spirit put a curse on the Rays today? And if so can we please quickly get the antidote? So, apparently even an out of contention team that has lost its two offensive threats and is known for its weak pitching can pull one out. A three -home homerun from Albert Pujols was the difference in this game. But it also could have looked very different with a sharper Ryan Yarbrough, a tad cleaner defense, and some more competitive at bats from the Rays earlier in the game. The day started off auspiciously for the Rays. Two singles and a sac fly...

Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports The Rays will look to snap their four game losing streak this afternoon Last night, the Tampa Bay Rays blew two separate leads against the Houston Astros as Ryan Yarbrough was unable to keep the Astros offense at bay with a 3-0 lead, surrendering three runs in the forth. Later, after the Rays took a 4-3 lead in the 7th, Diego Castillo would give up three runs of his own to give Houston a 6-4 advantage. Oliver Drake yielded two runs in the 8th. Willy Adames continued his stellar campaign away from Tropicana Field with a two run shot in the 9th, but it was...

John Glaser-USA TODAY Sports The Cole Train’s a-comin. Best git along Rays. Watch out. With Gerrit Cole pitching tonight after the match-up between Charlie Morton and Justin Verlander last night, we will have seen probably the top three pitchers in the American league in a span of two games. But Cole’s opponent tonight might be sleeper. Ryan Yarbrough has an 11-3 record for the year with a 3.29 ERA. However, as a starter he is even better, carrying a 2.70 ERA in 53 innings. Looks like it could be a pitcher’s duel. But that’s what we said last night, and the Astros won by two...

John Glaser-USA TODAY Sports A 15-1 loss to the Astros leads to the Rays falling back in the playoff chase The Tampa Bay Rays were shelled by the Houston Astros last night, 15-1. With the loss, and an Oakland victory, the Rays are now a game back of the Athletics for the second Wild Card spot. The Rays lone offensive contribution came from the bat of Joey Wendle, as he launched his first home run of his injury plagued season.

Rays 5, Orioles 2: Late night in Baltimore

Tommy Gilligan-USA TODAY Sports So tired. In the bottom of the fifth inning, as rain poured down over the city of Baltimore, with the score tied at two runs each, I silently cursed the baseball gods that Ryan Yarbrough’s night was likely over. It was not a no-hit gem, certainly, but the young starter had gone 4 1⁄3 with only one earned run on three hits. Two runs if we’re going by box score, but ERA cares not for your box score. He’d also collected an impressive five strikeouts and no walks on only 68 pitches. He had seemed poised to get through the fifth, but the weather gods...

Ryan Yarbrough has saved the Rays season thus far

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports Since his recall from Durham Yarbrough has put up a 2.45 ERA and 2.90 FIP in 88.1 IP. Most of the focus on the Rays pitching staff has centered around Charlie Morton. Morton deserves it. He has been incredible and with a 2.85 ERA, 2.70 FIP, and 3.27 xFIP he has put himself squarely in the discussion for the American League Cy Young Award. Morton’s 5.3 fWAR ranks third in the majors behind only Max Scherzer and Lance Lynn, and his 5.1 RA9 WAR ranks tied for seventh in the majors. Anyway you slice it Morton has been one of the best pitchers in...
