Skid Ends At 11

July 20th, 2016

CashRaysDing, dong, the road skid is dead!

All the horrible baseball became such a blur lately that it was easy to forget the Rays carried an 11-game road losing streak before rocking the Rockies 10-1 yesterday in Denver.

Well, that slump said, “Sayonara” in a big way.
Evan Longoria went long for his 22nd home run as part of a night when he had three RBIs. Brad Miller and Steve Pearce added a pair of RBIs in contributing to the hit show. Pearce was rockin’ in full form right off the disabled list!
One of the few bright spots in this miserable season has been Longoria’s offensive revival. Joe is pleased to see Longo capture some of his old magic. It’s a shame the rest of the year has been such a tire fire, though.
Joe was concerned Blake Snell would soil himself in Colorado serving up all kinds of long balls from hanging curveballs. But Snell was dominant with nine Ks and allowing just one hit through six innings.
The Rays needed a win like this in the worst way.

    Longoria hit a massive 467 foot home run that bounced out of Coors Field. He likes that crisp mountain air. What do you say Bob – Should we trade him to the Rockies ? Brad Miller had another 2 RBIs ! Where can we put him to hide his glove ?

    Happy to have Steve Pearce back in the lineup, nice to see him go yard and Longo do what he’s been doing all year
