According to the article posted on Tampa Bay Online, the Tampa Bay Devil Rays have secured the win last Wednesday against the Arizona Diamondbacks in a that ended 6-3. Two homeruns were hit by Corey Dickerson and Desmond Jennings hit a homerun of his own as well. Player Steve Pearce said that the team really “came together to face adversity” and that they “showed resiliency” to get this win.
Manager Kevin Cash called it an “awesome win”. This is an awesome win that the Rays definitely needed during their time away. The team had a rough start to their away trip in Kansas City where they suffered from three quite brutal losses. This win against the Diamondbacks, as well as their wins against the Minnesota Twins, is a beam of hope that they still may be able to salvage their season which is currently at 27-31.
Not only did the Rays suffer from some brutal game losses, but they suffered from some injuries as well. Brandon Guyer, who is a starting outfielder, is now out due to a hamstring injury. The anticipated return of closer Brad Boxberger was cut short after he suffered from an oblique strain after less than one inning back in the game.
Wednesday night’s game against the Diamondbacks ends the stretch of ten away games for the team who are now heading home.
