It was one of the weirder Rays games I’ve seen in recent memory.

David Price, who has been “Mr. Ray” over the past seven seasons, was not in a Tampa Bay Rays uniform, pitching for the Detroit Tigers against his former team. You would think Price would know to pitch against his teammates, and he did, only surrendering one hit and one run. Unfortunately for the Tigers, that lone run and hit held up as the Rays scored the 1-0 win at Tropicana Field.

Will the Rays make the playoffs?  Not looking likely now, as they’re 12 games behind Baltimore for the AL East title (as of this moment), and 7 games out of the second AL Wild Card berth. I’m not saying a miracle can’t happen (because it has happened before, namely the Rays 2011 campaign), but losing two out of the three games with the Tigers really took the wind out of our sails. But I refuse to give up hope.

Go Rays!
