-The Rays won 10-1 over the Orioles last night. Nice change of pace, huh? Ryan Roberts, new to Tampa Bay’s lineup, got his first homer as a Rays player and Jose Lobaton picked up the first home run of his career.
-In case you’d like to get to know Ryan Roberts a bit better, you can follow “Tatman” on Twitter. He’s @RRoberts14.
-Due to the addition of Roberts, Hideki Matsui has been designated for assignment.
-If you missed out on getting a Zim Bear earlier this season, the Rays will be giving them out to the first 10,000 fans at their September 3 game against the Yankees.
I got my hands on one after the first giveaway so if I manage to snag another, I’ll offer it up to my Twitter followers.
I don’t think my sister wants another one of those creepy things in our apartment…
-The Rays close out their three-game series at Camden Yards with a 12:35pm game tomorrow. Tampa Bay’s James Shields will face off against Baltimore’s Chris Tillman.
