With bullpen taxed, Gomes optioned to Triple-A

With their bullpen taxed, the Rays optioned RHP Brandon Gomes to Triple-A Durham after Saturday's game and will add an arm before Sunday's matinee.

Gomes threw 42 pitches in an eventful 10th inning, loading the bases with one out on two walks and a hit batter (throwing balls on 14 of his first 18 pitches), then - with manager Joe Maddon declining to have anyone even warming -  battled his way out of it, striking out Brandon Inge and getting Jemile Weeks on a ground out.
