Yankees’ Michael Pineda tames Rays back in their first road loss of year

in Sports/Top Headlines by

This time, the Tampa Bay Rays ran into the good Michael Pineda. In their first road game of the year, Pineda was a stop sign.

Kendrys Morales’ grand slam leads Blue Jays over Rays, Blake Snell

Together, the two led to a four-run third inning that gave the Toronto Blue Jays to a 5-2 victory over the Tampa Bay Rays Thursday night. Blake Snell gave up a grand slam to Kendrys Morales in the third, but only after giving up two-out walks to Josh Donaldson and Jose Bautista. “Walks,” Snell said, shaking his head.…
