Tampa Bay Rays

A two-run home run by Mike Trout and a three-run double by Matt Thaiss highlighted a five-run eighth inning as the visiting Los Angeles Angels rallied for a 7-3 victory over the Tampa Bay Rays on Monday at St. Petersburg, Fla. Rays starter Zach Eflin took a shutout into the seventh inning, but the bullpen was unable to hold onto a 1-0 lead. Trout followed a one-out single in the eighth by Anthony Rendon with his seventh home run of the season, turning on a 74-mph curveball by Tampa Bay reliever Phil Maton (0-1) to give the Angels a 2-1 lead.

Amed Rosario and René Pinto homered off Blake Snell in his return to Tropicana Field, and the Tampa Bay Rays beat the San Francisco Giants 9-4 on Sunday. Rosario hit a two-run homer during a three-run first and Pinto had a fourth-inning three-run drive. The light-hitting Pinto, who had two hits and nine strikeouts in his previous 13 at-bats, added a solo homer in the sixth against Kai-Wei Teng. “My locations is bad,” Snell said.

ST. PETERSBURG — Nobody really wanted to be at Tropicana Field Sunday for this. In five, 10 or 15 more years, when Dave Wills retired after decades in the Rays radio booth, induction into the team’s Hall of Fame would have been the perfect cap to a distinguished career. But Wills died, unexpectedly at age 58, in March 2023. The Rays wanted to honor him while memories were still fresh. Plans ...

The Giants paid $62 million to add a two-time Cy Young winner to their rotation. The Giants also committed those dollars to a pitcher with a history of slow starts and questionable command, and that is the Blake Snell who showed up again Sunday in his second start for his new team at the venue he called home for the first five years of his big-league career. It's not exactly the results they envisioned when they inked the 31-year-old left-hander late in spring training. Before first pitch, manager Bob Melvin acknowledged the goal, still, was for him “to settle in and get comfortable.”

ST. PETERSBURG — Given all they’re missing, including their top three left-handed bats, the Rays are doing pretty well to be OK. At 8-6 entering Saturday’s game, the Rays feel pretty good about what they’ve done, especially how they’ve done it — without the usual balance throughout their lineup; the ability to stack lefties against tough big-split, right-handed starters; and the flexibility to ...

Jacob Waguespack and five relievers combined on a six-hitter and the Tampa Bay Rays beat the San Francisco Giants 2-1 on Friday night. Waguespack gave up one run and four hits over four innings in his first start since Sept. 25, 2019, and fourth appearance this season. Phil Maton, Colon Poche, Jason Adam and Pete Fairbanks — who worked the ninth to get his third save in as many chances — closed out the Rays' fifth win in six games.

ST. PETERSBURG — Jake Odorizzi’s comeback attempt with his adopted hometown Rays has come to an end — for now. Odorizzi, 34, was granted his release by the Rays on Thursday, following an abbreviated outing on Sunday in his second start for Triple-A Durham. Odorizzi said he is not going to retire, but is planning to continue his comeback bid — potentially with the Rays — later this season once ...

ANAHEIM, Calif. — Manager Kevin Cash has been talking for a few days about the Rays offense, about the need to find ways to create opportunities in more innings, rather than just post a few big ones, and to be more relentless on the attack. They showed some signs of that Tuesday night, scoring in four innings, while threatening in a couple others, on the way to a 6-4 win over the Angels that ...

Apr. 9—Life can change fast in professional sports. So fast sometimes, even a man making his living off speed can get blindsided by it. Such is the case of Greg Jones, who less than three weeks ago was still a prospect in the Tampa Bay Rays organization — the one that drafted him in the first round, No. 22 overall, out of UNC-Wilmington in 2019. Then came the call on March 21 that threw his ...

Even better for the Rays, the right-hander has been more comfortable — and successful — on the mound. Civale heads into Tuesday’s start against the Angels coming off a pair of impressive outings against ...
