Hey, didn’t you used to be Logan Morrison?
You know, the guy who was hitting .119 after 28 games? The guy who didn’t have a home run? The guy who didn’t have an RBI?
These days, it’s a different Morrison who plays for the Rays. He’s hit .556 over his last eight games, and he’s brought his season average up to .225. He has seven RBI in his last seven games.
Alas, three more hits by Morrison could not lift the Rays Wednesday night. Cole Gillespie hit a run-scoring single in the eighth inning to lead Miami to a 4-3 victory. It left the Rays two games under .500 at 21-23.
Morrison had two singles and a two-run homer that tied the score at 3 in the sixth.
Matt Andriese pitched six innings for the Rays, giving up eight hits and three earned runs. Six players, however, had two hits each for the Marlins.
The teams play again today at 12:30. Drew Smiley pitches for the Rays against Jose Fernandez.
