On bark at the park day, the Rays refused to roll over and play dead. They battled back from an four run deficit, before coming up on the losing side of a 5-3 dogfight. It was Charlie Morton’s first loss in four dog years.
With the club sporting Devil Ray throwbacks, Morton was bedeviled by Angels not named Trout and Ohtani. The big two were 0 for 6 with 3 strikeouts against Morton. The rest of the lineup were like yippy little Yorkshire terriers, pestering the Rays righty throughout his six innings of work, scoring four times on five hits.
