There’s just no nitpicking when the Rays toss back-to-back shutouts from their fourth and fifth starters.
Joe was certain walking away with only one run from four consecutive walks to open the home first inning — against a scared Indians rookie starter no less — would come back and bite the Rays. But various other missed golden opportunities just didn’t matter in this 6-0 win against the Tribe.
Alex Cobb was aggressive and effecient, as was Joel Peralta. Desmond Jennings continues to show he’s eager, ready and willing to drive his game to new heights. … And now we wait for Major League Baseball to outlaw home-plate collisions, and for the Rays to retaliate for Evan Longoria’s seemingly pointless ass-beaning.
It should be a fun Sunday, and one of those hidden big games. A sweep behind David Price is the perfect sendoff to a 10-game road trip.
