Tampa Bay Rays wrecked Baltimore Orioles 4-1 on Sunday game. Ryan Yarbrough was in his finest as he played a crucial role in Ray’s victory.
Yarbrough said that he was so locked in until he went to the eighth to warm, then a kid yells at him saying not to blow it. And that when he realized the situation.
Then Hanser gave Tampa Bay 4-1 edge they need over Orioles in the ninth. Yarbrough was also unhittable until the ninth; he mixed fastball with a sinker and deceptive changeup.
Stanek and Yarbrough looked like All-Star on this day. Rays manager Kevin Cash said that Stanek was in an area to establish pitches while Yarbrough came and picked right up.
Rays attempt to perfect the game was ended by RHP Alberto batting at .400 against lefties. He pushed a grounder to the right side, exactly where the baseman usually stands.
After that Stevie Wilkerson singled and an RBI single by Anthony Santander enabled Baltimore to break the shutout. Emilio Pagan made his sixth save when he struck out Trey Mancini.
Yarbrough had three stints with Tampa Bay this season while moving between minor and major league. In the previous outing, he had six runs in five innings.
In the game, Yarbrough had 8-3, which is almost perfect. On the other hand, Baltimore hit five balls out of the infield.
Stanek had two hard-hit balls in the second inning. Pedro hit a liner to second baseman Joey Wendle. Chris Davis followed with a drive to third baseman Michael Brosseau. Then, Brosseau and Austin Meadow homered off Tom Eshelman (0-2) to give Rays three out of four winnings from Orioles.
Baltimore Orioles has the worst record in the league at the moment. It has been a tough season for them.
