The Rays fall again

I guess the medicine man didn’t work: the Rays lost again, 3-0 to the Mariners. It was their 13th loss in 14 games. And it came, once again, with the help of a terrible offense.

That offense let David Price down. He allowed three earned runs over eight innings and struck out ten while walking only one guy, but it didn’t matter as he got no support at all. Price’s ERA is not Cy Young worthy — it stands at 3.97 — but he has a 111/10 K/BB ratio in 99 and two-thirds innings and he deserves better than a 4-6 record.

It was a team effort on the pitching side for the Mariners, as Erasmo Ramirez was inefficient as all get-out, walking five in four and two-thirds innings and not being able to hang around to qualify for the win. The bullpen then took over and four relievers combined to pitch four and a third scoreless innings. The M’s runs came on a Robinson Cano two-run double and a Stefan Romero fielder’s choice.

Just some terrible baseball from the Rays these days.
