Okay. Who had Erasmo Ramirez in the pool?
Ramirez, who wasn’t even in the starting rotation of the Tampa Bay Rays until Saturday, became the first starter to win a game for the team. Backed by three home runs, the Rays broke out for seven runs in a 7-2 victory over the White Sox.
Tampa Bay had been shut out in its previous two games and had only one run in its last three. It was the lowest-scoring team in the majors.
Ramirez threw 5 2/3 innings of three-hit, shutout baseball to go to 2-0 on the season. Behind him, Brandon Guyer had a solo home run and Brad Miller had a three-run shot.
Brad Lawry hit a two-run homer to halve the deficit, but the Rays added three more runs to win going away. Desmond Jennings hit the Rays’ third homer of the game.
Miller had two hits, matching his season total for the Rays. Evan Longoria, Jennings and Steven Souza Jr. also had two hits.
Matt Moore takes the mound for the Rays today against Chicago’s Jose Quintana.
