4:21 am
and maybe the rays could have used tebow last night... because their offense really needs a spark. chris archer had a solid start ... in game two against the red sox. he had some issues in the third inning though. first, he gave up an rbi single to david ortiz. and then... something you'll probably ?never see again. ortiz... running... all the way from the first... to home! steven souza junior missed that throw to 3rd. ortiz scores...and it's two-nothing sox. the rays would get on the board in the 5th... kevin kiermaier with the liner into right... plates corey dickerson. but it wouldn't be enough. the rays lose... 2 to 1. game three against the sox tonight at 7-10.
