Two homers doom Gray at Citi Field

Two homers doom Gray at Citi Field

There is no escaping how weird it will be for the Tampa Bay Rays and New York Yankees to play three Rays "home games" at Citi Field, which is usually occupied by the Yankees' crosstown rival, the New York Mets.

Dan Jennings got the final out of the seventh before winning pitcher Tommy Hunter (3-5) threw a flawless eighth.

"I felt fine, that's the only positive I can take from (the start) is that I felt good and my stuff was good", Archer said.

The Rays pulled out the win when shortstop Adeiny Hechavarria hit a tie-breaking homer in the eighth inning off Sonny Gray, who went the distance in defeat, but one of the biggest takeaways was the crowd. Our plan right now is to fly home after Wednesday's game.

"Normally, I'm out of my element swinging that hard, I normally don't swing that hard", Hechavarria said through an interpreter. If you're going to win the wild card or AL East, and must cut through the meat of the league to get there, you might as well play them in your backyard. "I just got beat there".

Alex Colome earned his major league-leading 44th save with a flawless ninth inning in which he induced three grounders to Hechavarria at shortstop. He was rocked for eight runs (six earned) on nine hits with five strikeouts and one walk over three innings in a 9-3 loss at the Red Sox his last time out.

That will be followed by two games in Miami at Marlins Park. When spring training is complete, the Sox will open the season at Tampa Bay on March 29 for a four-game series. "But tonight, it wasn't meant to be". Gray shoots for back to back wins after knocking off the Baltimore Orioles 9-1 with an unearned run allowed on six hits over 5.2 innings of work. NY has scored one run or fewer in all five of his losses. "It didn't feel like we're the home team", Rays reliever Steve Cishek said.

Rays: RF Steven Souza Jr. returned to the lineup for the first time since Friday, when he nicked his left knee running into a wall at Boston.

However, Mets manager Terry Collins knows it won't be as odd for the teams, particularly the Rays, as it was the last time the Mets' home stadium hosted a Yankees game.

The Yankees prized trade deadline acquisition pitched just the second complete game of the season for NY. The left-handed-hitting Bird, who likely would have sat regardless against Rays LHP Blake Snell, said he felt better Tuesday but underwent an MRI as a precaution.

Baseball released its 2018 schedule, and it has the Sox finishing at home against the Yankees on September 28-30.

Only one current member of the Rays, third baseman Evan Longoria, was on the team when it last played at Citi Field in 2009.
