The Rays and the Orioles met at Tropicana Field tonight, both coming off a week of rough match-ups. The Rays had lost their last three after being swept by the Chicago White Sox and the Baltimore Orioles lost five in a row to include two of three to Kansas City and a sweep by Toronto.
To sum up the highlights of tonight’s game in one paragraph, it may go something like this…
“Los doubles a wild pitch triple, Godzilla almost hits a ball through the back wall, the Price is right on 7 1/3, there are somersaults being done by “Sweet Swingin’ 20″ in right-field, the Upton Cannon goes off in center for a kill at second, and the Honey Badger decimates a flock of birds with a straw…”
After the feathers settled, the Tampa Bay sits alone atop the American League East, ahead by a full game.
