  • DRaysBay: Rays 5, Dodgers 7: We don't love it

    Making a quick two-game visit to Dodger Stadium, the Rays and Dodgers set off in the first game of the series in front of a national YouTube audience.

    Blake Snell started this game for the Rays in his first game back from injury, facing off against opener Caleb Ferguson for the Dodgers.

    In the top of the second, Joey Wendle walked before stealing second base. Wendle advanced to third on a balk by Caleb Ferguson and scored when Willy Adames hit a sacrifice fly.

    Snell was fantastic in his two innings of work, striking out four while not allowing any hits or walks.

  • DRaysBay: Random Ray of the Week: Nick Anderson

    Hello, and welcome to the beginning of weekly series in which we will randomly choose one member of the Rays in franchise history to do a quick synopsis of their career and check out any highlights -- if there are any available.

    I took every player in franchise history whose last name started with the letter 'A' and randomized them and the player who was generated was...Nick Anderson.

    Nick Anderson was a 32nd round selection by the Milwaukee Brewers in 2012, however, he did not sign, thanks somewhat to some issues in his past regarding the law, and instead chose to pursue an opportunity in the Independent Leagues.

  • DRaysBay: Rays 4 Angels 6: Dang this one hurts

    So, apparently even an out of contention team that has lost its two offensive threats and is known for its weak pitching can pull one out.

    A three -run homerun from Albert Pujols was the difference in this game. But it also could have looked very different with a sharper Ryan Yarbrough, a tad cleaner defense, and some more competitive at bats from the Rays earlier in the game.

    The day started off auspiciously for the Rays. Two singles and a sac fly in the first gave them a 1-0 lead. After that their offense took a long, cozy nap.

  • DRaysBay: Tampa Bay Rays News and Links: Stuck in the Middle (for now)

    The Rays now sit a game and a half below the apparently-never-going-to-lose-again A's and a game and a half up on the definitely-questionable-but-man-the-AL-Central-is-soft Cleveland Professional Baseball Team.

    It's not a bad spot to be in by any stretch of the imagination, and it's going to make for a hectic and ulcer-inducing final few weeks of the season.
