Rays 2, Red Sox 0: Bullpen Day records two-hit shutout of Red Sox

Rays 2, Red Sox 0: Bullpen Day records two-hit shutout of Red Sox

Solo shots from Joey Wendle and C.J. Cron back a dynamic Bullpen Day performance. It’s not every day Bullpen Day tosses a two-hitter at the most feared lineup in baseball. But that’s what happened, as solo shots from Joey Wendle and C.J. Cron backed a gutsy pitching performance from Diego Castillo, Jalen Beeks, Chaz Roe, Jose Alvarado, and Sergio Romo. The tone was set early. On the first pitch of his first big league Open, Diego Castillo got hosed.

Rays prospects and minor leagues: Solak homers twice

Nick Solak has been on a tear in August. Nick Solak slumped in June and July, but through 16 games in August, he’s been a lot like the hitter he was in the first couple months. He’s batting .350 with a .431 on-base percentage and .600 slugging percentage, and he has as many walks as strikeouts. Triple-A Durham Bulls (68-54) Ryan Weber was sharp in Durham’s 3-0 win over Pawtucket. In seven innings, he struck out five and gave up just four hits with no walks. Colin Poche and Ian Gibaut each pitched an inning to finish the game. In the sixth, Brandon Snyder broke the scoreless tie with a...

Rays: 2, Red Sox: 5 - Cron Crushed; Glasnow Great (After 1st Inning)

It wasn’t a bad game, it just wasn’t a great game Rays were looking to even up the series against the Red Sox and former Ray David Price. And boy did it get off to a rough start. The Rays didn’t do much in the 1st, after getting the first two runners aboard thanks to a Red Sox throwing error, Bauers, Pham and Cron couldn’t get the ball out of the infield to bring anybody home. Red Sox quickly got on the board thanks to back to back doubles by Andrew Benintendi and Mitch Moreland to make it 1-0 Red Sox. Back to back to back walks by Glasnow makes it 2-0 Red Sox, but Glasnow’s...
