TBO Rays: Rays hang on for 1-0 win over Marlins
MIAMI - For only one run being scored over more than three hours of play, the Rays had to lot to unpack as they packed for New York with their lead in the AL East intact following a 1-0 win over the cross-state Marlins.
Indicative of how it's been going for them lately, rookie catcher Anthony Bemboom, who had every reason to celebrate after rapping his first major-league hit to drive in the only run, was one of three players who were injured during the game. And, potentially, most seriously as the Rays improved to 26-15, just ahead of the Yankees, who swept a doubleheader from the Orioles.
DRaysBay: Rays 1 Marlins 0: More injuries than runs for the Rays, but it's still a win
The Marlins may have the worst record in baseball, but they certainly proved difficult to beat tonight. The Rays did emerge victorious, but Marlins pitchers managed to hold their offense to a meek whimper.
The Rays had a first inning threat against the Marlins Jose Urena. Ji -Man Choi reached on a hard ground ball that slipped through the infield, and Brandon Lowe finally got a hit after several games of utter futility. Yandy Diaz hit a patented hard grounder deep to third but was thrown out to end the inning.
Ryne Stanek opened for the Rays, and he started a little inauspiciously by walking Curtis Granderson (it was interesting to see how the defense was positioned against Granderson -- shift to the right with a four man outfield).
TBO Rays: Rays at Marlins lineups for Wednesday
After beating the Marlins 4-0 on Tuesday, the Rays are looking to make it a sweep of the quick two-game set that is part of the annual Citrus Series.
Ryne Stanek will be on the mound for the Rays as the opener tonight, with lefty Jalen Beeks expected to work the bulk of the innings. Beeks last worked May 7, throwing 50 pitches over 3 1/3 innings, allowing a run that ended his scoreless streak at 13 1/3. When Beeks gets in the game could also be dictated by where the Rays are in their batting order as they are playing under NL rules and would prefer, obviously, to have him not bat or at least as little as possible.

MIAMI - Waking up early for a rare day-of-game flight didn't keep the Rays from capping the night with a celebration.
Avisail Garcia and Charlie Morton led the way as the Rays beat the cross-state rival Marlins 4-0 on Tuesday.
Fish Stripes: Tampa Bay beats Marlins 4-0 behind Morton's dominant outing
Somebody was at risk of taking their first "L" of 2019 in Tuesday's matchup between undefeated starters Caleb Smith and Charlie Morton. That pitcher turned out to be Smith, whose Marlins were shut out by Morton and the Rays, 4-0.
Originally scheduled to pitch the finale of a three-game set against the New York Mets this past Mother's Day, Smith was working on two extra days' rest due to the postponement. He got off to a superb start, punching out two of his eight hitters in the first inning.
However, he committed one costly blemish in the top of the second.
