They only scored six runs.
They only had 10 hits.
Alas, the poor Tampa Bay Rays. Their recent surge of offense is easing up.
The Rays (19-19) had a normal big night Wednesday night, sweeping the Toronto Blue Jays with a 6-3 victory. Still, Tampa Bay completed one of its most lopsided series, scoring 31 runs and getting 44 hits in the three games. It was the second time in team history (the other was in August of 2007) that the team has won back-to-back games by 10 runs or more.
This time, the onslaught was led by two of the least viable suspects on the team. Logan Morrison, who exited the game hitting .170, had three hits and a home run. Desmond Jennings, who is now hitting .188, had a home run. Evan Longoria and Tim Beckham had two hits.
Jake Odorizzi got his first win of the year, throwing five innings and allowed two earned runs and two hits. Alex Colome had his 10th save.
The Rays now travel to Detroit for a Friday game against the Tigers. Matt Andriese pitches for the Rays.
