Game 3

Home Up


    Something happened tonight that isn't likely to happen too often with this year's edition of the Rays... all nine players on the team were present for the game! Good thing, too, because they needed contributions from each of them to squeeze out a victory in this game, a tough battle against the Mets. The Rays started out strong, getting off to a fast start and a 7-1 lead, including a a run scored by Samantha following one of her two walks during the game. After a pitching change, the Mets were able to get back into the game, eventually tying the score at 9 runs apiece in the third and final inning (thanks to the time limit and impending darkness, this game was shortened from the scheduled six innings to three). The Rays managed a hit and three walks in the bottom of the third, however, forcing in the winning run, giving them a 10-9 victory... their second of the season!

    Just a quick note. Although this is the Rays third game of the season and I am treating it as such, officially the first game didn't count (don't ask me why... I don't understand why a game is played on opening day that doesn't count). Technically that means that the Rays are now 2-0 on the season! Whatever the case may be, great job to all of the players!
