I missed most of this game, so I can't write a proper recap. And nobody else wanted to kill their Saturday night doing it either. If someone wants to come along and tart this up, be my guest. Or you can read the TSN Recap.
Suffice to say that, just as we have all come to expect, Brad Bergesen dominated the Rays tonight with a complete game shutout, and Mark Reynolds and Jake Fox showed off their usual fireworks with the longball—just as they always do.....Bwahahahaha!
The line on Bergy:
9 IP, 0 ER, 4H, 1BB, 5K. He threw 103 pitches, 68 for strikes. Tampa Bay was shutout for the first time this year.
The season series between these teams is now tied at 4-4. Jake Arrieta will face Andy Sonnanstine in the rubber game tomorrow at 1:40 PM EDT.
UPDATE: I still didn't watch this game, but it does seem that some folks started to hit a little. Every starter but Luuuke and JJ got a hit, and Roberts, Markakis, Vladdy, and Aj all had multiple-hit games. So that's nice.
