The Tampa Bay Rays, still trying to escape from the AL East cellar, have added some speed to their roster.

in Sports/Statewide by

Everyone agrees on his future. The Tampa Bay Rays’ Blake Snell, the consensus goes, will be a very big deal in major league baseball. But after Thursday, it’s fair to ask. Is it Snell time yet? Snell, in his home debut, got out only 10 outs before being chased from the game. He gave up five runs (only one earned), eight hits and three walks. Snell gave up three runs in his first inning as the Seattle Mariners avoided a sweep.…

Mariners edge Rays late on home run by Chris Iannetta in 11th

in Sports/Top Headlines by

The Tampa Bay Rays left this one somewhere on base. Maybe on third. Maybe on second. Regardless, it was the failure to take advantage of opportunities that doomed the Rays in their third straight defeat, a loss that left the team at 15-17 as it prepares to return home. The Rays lost 6-5 in 11 innings on a home run by Seattle‘s Chris Iannetta, but they flirted with going ahead after Kevin Kiermaier’s home run in the top of the ninth.…

Rays hit three more homers, but score too few against Mariners

in Sports/Top Headlines by

The Tampa Bay Rays keep hitting the ball a long way. They also keep having very little to show for it. Take Tuesday night, when Tampa Bay got three home runs in its game against Seattle … which accounted for three runs. The Mariners, on the other hand, hit two out and scored five runs off it in a 6-4 victory. It’s been that way all year. The Rays came into the game hitting .225, their worst to this point of the season by…

King Felix Hernandez tames the Rays hitters once again

in Sports/Top Headlines by

If Felix Hernandez is the King, then what regal nickname should be bestowed on shortstop Ketel Marte? While Hernandez was as regal as always, it was Marte who delivered the knockout shot against the Tampa Bay Rays in a 5-3 victory. The Seattle Mariners‘ Marte had four hits on the night, including the winning three-run homer in the sixth. Tampa Bay, as a team, had only four hits. Two of them were home runs by Corey Dickerson and Evan Longoria,…
