What Went Right
This team notches another come from behind win which is exciting to see. They could of easily come out flat after last nights opening day performance.
Matt Garza kept the Rays in the game with his 8 inning, 9 strikeouts outing giving up only 1 earned run. Seems like Matty is in mid-season form already and Tampa Bay will need him to keep this up playing in the East.
Some other side notes:
- Evan Longoria is on pace for 162 homeruns
- Pena and Brignac racked in two hits each
- Our DH spot in the lineup is producing…..scratch that we might be better off with 8 hitters
What Went Wrong
Rafael Soriano is scaring me. I know it is early in the season but I thought the reason we got him was to feel safe when we enter the 9th inning with a lead. Lets just hope that this little funk isn’t permeant.
We’re undefeated and leading the AL East.
Tomorrow night is the final game of the series. The Rays will send out Jeff Niemann to go for the sweep against Brian Matusz. First pitch is at 7:10 P.M.
