It wasn’t the best night for the Tampa Bay Rays not to be televised.
Playing in Los Angeles against the Angels, late in the evening following the Lightning’s playoff victory, the Rays were blacked out in their 5-2 victory over the Los Angeles Angels.
Chris Archer pitched six shutout innings to bring his record to 2-4. Corey Dickerson hit a three-run homer in the first. And Brad Miller, the light-hitting shortstop, went four-for-five to up his average to .216.
The Rays scored four runs in the first inning and led 5-0 after three. The Angels scored one run in both the seventh and eighth. Other than Miller, Steven Souza and Logan Forsythe had two hits each.
Tampa Bay plays the Angels again tonight when Jake Odorizzi pitches against Jered Weaver.
