Matt Baker's takeways from Rays-A's

A day after blaming the Rays' loss on his bounced throw to first, Willy Adames failed to convert on another fielding opportunity. He couldn't get a soft grounder out of his glove, which helped Tampa Bay fall behind 1-0. It was ruled a hit, but it's the kind of play an

Wander. Franco. Wander. Franco. Wander. Franco. Wander. Franco. Wander. Franco. Wander. Franco. Wander Franco. Oh and the Rays lost last night, but not before rallying in the ninth to make it a one run game. They even got the tying run on base, but Kevin Kiermaier grounded out to end the threat. Tommy Pham crushed the longest home run of his career during the game, a shot that landed near the Left Field Ledge, projecting to be 458 feet. Willy Adames and Kevin Kiermaier teamed up on a double steal, that allowed Adames to swipe home. Jalen Beeks was solid once again, delivering four excellent...

Marc Topkin's takeaways from Rays' 6-1 win Sunday over Red Sox:* Willy Adames had a rough weekend, going 1-for-16 with 9 Ks. Daniel Robertson is still fighting to keep his average over .200 and his OPS above .600. Which makes it quite interesting to see what the Rays do

Marc Topkin's takeaways from Saturday's Rays-Red Sox games

• The Rays have done a lot well this season. Running the bases isn't one of them. They had runners thrown out at first, second and third in Game 1, and when Willy Adames was called out at the plate in Game 2, they completed a somewhat unimpressive cycle.• Maybe it

View from the Catwalk: Snell rocked in Detroit

It was going good, until it wasn’t Last night, the Tampa Bay Rays losing ways continued as they fell, 9-6, to the Detroit Tigers. Blake Snell had overcome a rough couple of innings and appeared to be dominating until he ran into a buzzsaw during a fifth inning that eventually concluded Snell’s night on the mound, as he would give up a grand slam to Miguel Cabrera. The positives for the Rays were low, but Avisail Garcia homered in his return to the lineup and Austin Meadows doubled. Willy Adames launched a grand slam of his own in the 8th, and that’d be it for the Rays...

View from the Catwalk: St Pete decision to come by the end of August

Mayor Kriseman expects to hear from the Rays by the end of the summer The Tampa Bay Rays prevailed in an extra inning affair last night as they successfully swept the Toronto Blue Jays. Blake Snell provided a strong performance on the mound and the bullpen held the Blue Jays offense to one run over five innings of work. Hunter Wood was the MVP of the night for Tampa Bay as he gave them three scoreless innings, allowing just two hits. Willy Adames provided the walk-off knock as he launched a deep flyball (which turned out to be a single) with the bases loaded to bring home the winning run...

Rays 4, Blue Jays 3: Walkoff Willy

Rays 4, Blue Jays 3: Walkoff Willy

We won a one-run game!!! Willy Adames may need to change his name to Willy Walkoff. For the second time in his (very young) Rays career, the Santiago native sent the Rays to victory with one swing of the bat. Unlike last time when Walkoff Willy (which way sounds better?) left the yard for his game-winner, this one stayed in the yard, but it was still more than enough to bring the Rays to a season-high 15 games over .500. At 34-19, they are now only one game off their best-ever start to a season (2010), and they kept pace in what is becoming an increasingly fun AL East race already. However,...
