Rays vs. Orioles, game two recap: A grand buffalo

Rays vs. Orioles, game two recap: A grand buffalo

Wilson Ramos made the Rays baserunners count. The game plan to beat Ubaldo Jimenez is not a secret. At this point, lots of teams have done it. Take your walks and hit your ground balls. You’ll get plenty of men on base. It’s what happens next that determines the outcome of the game. If Jimenez is able to rack up strikeouts and groundball double plays, his team might win. If instead he gives up hard contact, the runs will come in bunches. The second inning was exactly to script for the Rays. First, Logan Morrison was hit by a pitch. Then Steven Souza Jr. grounded up the middle,, just out...

Marc Topkin's takeaways from Friday's Rays-Orioles game

RHP Alex Cobb hates to hear how he "battled through" or "grinded out" a start rather than just dominated, but that's kind of what he did Friday, allowing nine hits and a walk and being charged with two wild pitches but only three runs in earning his 12th win.The Rays made the bold move to sign C

Orioles lose 81st game, guarantee non-winning season

Ubaldo Jimenez is wrapping up his Orioles career in a predictably bad fashion The Orioles sent Ubaldo Jimenez to the mound to night for his 104th start for the team since he signed four years ago. It, like so many other starts he has made, did not go well. A second-inning grand slam was enough to put the Orioles in a hole from which they could not recover as the Rays went on to win 8-3. The loss is the 81st of the season for the Orioles, thus guaranteeing they will not post a winning season in 2017. If they want to go 81-81 and avoid a non-losing season, they will have to to run the table...
