D-Rays 10, Toronto 5. The Devil Rays matched their season-high of 10 runs and 4 home runs. This marked the third time this year the team has score 10 runs and the second time they have done it against Toronto and only the 8th time in 28 games they have scored at least 5. And in one of the more weird stats we have seen recently, The Rays have played 19 series this year and are 12-7 in the final game of a series and 7-2 in the last 9 series. In those 9 series, the D-Rays are 5-14 in all other games. On Sunday, Doug Waechter tried to show that he deserves to remain in the rotation. After giving up 3 runs in the 1st inning, Waechter settled down and gave up only 1 more run in the next 5 innings. It marked his first win of the season and broke a string of 8 consecutive losses dating back to last August. Waechter, could still be the odd man out when Casey Fossum returns later this week, especially if James Shields pitches well against the Angels. Carl Crawford missed his 3rd straight game, although he was available to pinch hit. He is expected back in the lineup on Monday against the Angels. Also expected back for the Angels series is Jorge Cantu, who has missed 37 games with an injured foot, although the exact date is still undecided.
