Rays rally past A’s 5-4

Saturday night the Tampa Bay Rays finally remembered that they're the best come-from-behind team in Major League Baseball, not the Oakland A’s. After trailing for most of the game, they pulled ahead 5-4 with 3 runs in the top of the eighth inning for the win; you can thank Willy Aybar for his two-out RBI-double and Sean Rodriguez for his two-run home run to the second level.

When the first out you record in a game is an RBI-sacrifice fly, you know there are going to be problems. Rays starting pitcher David Price was… ok I’ll say it, he was horrible in the first inning, allowing two runs and throwing more than 40 pitches to get the first three outs. And then he settled down, pitching three-up three-down through the fifth inning and allowing four runs on six hits, striking out five batters while walking one. Price was tagged for two more with two outs in the bottom of the sixth after allowing a lead-off walk; Randy Choate got the eventual win.
