On August 15, the Rays watched Felix Hernandez toss a perfect game against them. They responded with two straight wins against the Angels. Because of those wins, we decided to use the Bee Gees’ “Stayin’ Alive” as the “song to pump you up” in The Tailgate for the third game of that series. That night, the Rays fell behind the Angels 8-0 in the third inning. But they didn’t give up, they battled back, and won the game 10-8.
Fast forward one month and the Rays have fallen behind the Yankees and the Orioles and things look as bad now as they did on that afternoon in Seattle. So it is time to find some of that Bee Gees Mojo once again.
