This series might be headed back to The Trop.

The Rays, pummeled by the Rangers in Games 1 and 2 back in Tampa, are now leading Texas 5-2 in the seventh inning of Sunday’s ALDS Game 4 in Arlington.  Rays rookie Wade Davis fanned seven batters and allowed just two runs, looking mature in situations that required serious damage control.  Evan Longoria is 2-for-3 with a homer and two RBI.  Carlos Pena has an RBI and two runs scored.

The Rangers didn’t get the start they were hoping for out of youngster Tommy Hunter, who was pulled from the game after allowing three runs and six hits over four innings of work.  Nelson Cruz homered in the bottom of the sixth, but it was a solo shot.  A three-run deficit won’t be easy to overcome.

If the Rays hang on, they’ll tie the five-game series at 2-2.  Look for a battle of left-handed aces in Game 5 with Cliff Lee going for the Rangers and David Price taking the home-field mound at Tropicana Field.

In the meantime, the Yankees will continue to rest their banged-up players.  They swept the Twins on their own side of the ALDS and the ALCS doesn’t kick off until Friday night.

    I’m so excited for game 5. Lee vs Price! High pressure situations! Maybe Hamilton will bat better than .154!
