When are they planning on contracting the Tampa Bay Rays anyway?
The Toronto Blue Jays surely wouldn’t protest if the idea were proposed given their absolute abysmal performance against the Rays. The Jays can lose every which way to Tampa Bay and that was shown clearly during this latest series in which they lost two of three.
The Blue Jays have now lost 11 consecutive series against Tampa, including a ridiculous 15th straight road series loss.
Toronto’s record is now 24-21 and they trail the AL East leading Baltimore Orioles by four full games.
Here are the quick recaps and boxscores for the series:
Game 1 – Jays 6, Rays 2 – Kyle Drabek struggled with command, finds a way to win.
Game 2 – Rays 8, Jays 5 – Slumping Carlos Pena homers, Drew Hutchison routed.
Game 3 – Rays 5, Jays 4 (11) – BJ Upton double sinks Jays in extra innings after furious rally.
UP NEXT: Off day (May 24, 2012) followed by a three game series in Texas against the Rangers, who are 27-18 thus far.
