It’s pathetic that Joe is sitting here mad that Matt Joyce didn’t move from second to third in the ninth inning with one out when a pitch got away from the Orioles’ catcher toward the first base bag.
Would it have made a difference with Jeff Keppinger at the plate? Nobody knows. But that’s what it comes down to for the Rays; they have to be on high alert for a mere chance to score a run.
The Rays were shut out again, 1-0 in 10 innings, to lose the series to the Orioles on Sunday. What a disgraceful waste of a David Price gem, and Joe aches for the faithful that paid to watch that game.
The pitching keeps improving, while the hitting keeps tanking.
The bang-your-head-against-the-wall season marches on.
