It isn’t hard to figure out why the Tampa Bay Rays aren’t winning. It’s because of all those men stranded on base. The Rays lost again on Tuesday night, falling 3-2 to Kansas City. Tampa Bay went only one for 14 with runners on base, an old habit. The Rays are 8-9 since the all-star break, and they’re hitting only .141 with nine hits in 64 at bats in the losses. In the wins, they’re hitting .403 with 25 hits…

Rays’ Matt Moore pitches gem, but Matt Andriese sent to bullpen

in Sports/Top Headlines by

Matt Moore kept his place in the Tampa Bay Rays’ pitching rotation. Matt Andriese did not. Moore threw his best game of the season, shutting down the Houston Astros on two hits in a 5-0 victory. He overcame a 37-pitch second inning and settled down behind a sharp curveball, giving up only a pair of singles to Jose Altuve. He struck out 10, tying for his season high. It was his first scoreless start since September of 2015. Moore has…
