The Tampa Bay Rays have scored an inordinate amount of their runs via the long ball.
On a day such as Sunday, who’s complaining?
The Rays hit two more home runs against the Los Angeles Angels Sunday, powering their way to a 3-1 victory. It was the first series sweep of the season for the Rays, and it lifted them above .500 at 15-14 for the year.
In all, it wasn’t a bad day for the Rays, who got the win from call-up starter Matt Andriese, who threw seven innings of four-hit baseball. Alex Colome recorded his ninth save of the season.
Brad Miller hit a two-run homer in the third inning, and Curt Casali hit one in the fifth.
It was the Rays’ 39th home run in 29 games, a team record. The home run has accounted for 56 of 103 runs for the Rays this year.
For the Rays, Matt Moore will pitch tonight against Seattle’s Felix Hernandez.
