Tampa Bay Rays News and Links: At least it wasn’t a 1 run loss

The Tampa Bay Rays and New York Yankees were able to play yesterday, despite miserable conditions all afternoon.

Chris Archer went five innings for Tampa Bay, allowing four runs on six hits, while he walked three and struck out eight before giving way to Austin Pruitt, the eventual losing pitcher.

Trailing 4-1 in the sixth, the Rays rallied for three runs to tie the game, with Denard Span providing another clutch hit with the bases loaded. Unfortunately, that’d be all the scoring for the Rays. The Yankees would then lay siege to the Rays bullpen and go on to defeat the Rays, 11-4.
