Joe can’t think of another word to describe the dump the Rays dropped in Baltimore tonight, losing 9-2. “Boring” also comes to mind.
When was the last time everyone out of the Rays pen got tagged?
Hittable Jason Hammel was on the mound for Baltimore and the Rays couldn’t do much with him. Then Hammel gets run early for medical reasons and the Rays are dead against the Orioles’ pen. Joe Maddon probably enjoyed some long Rays at-bats, but that’s nothing to celebrate after a critical September game.
It’s almost silly to say at this point in the season, but tomorrow is a very big game with the Rays two back on the Wild Card and division pace with 21 to go.
