The Tampa Bay Rays are doing something they haven’t done in their existence: finding ways to win meaningful ballgames. They’ve now won 5 games in a row, including the past two against the Boston Red Sox (and 3 against the Toronto Blue Jays in Toronto).
Troy Percival has notched saves in 4 of the 5 victories. He also hasn’t allowed an earned run on the season.
Isn’t it good for baseball that these guys compete? We think so.
