Gomes sent down, position player on way



With their bullpen stabilized after playing three extra-inning games in a five-day span, the Rays sent extra reliever RHP Brandon Gomes back to Triple-A Durham after Friday's game.

A corresponding move, most likely to restore a fourth posiiton player to the bench, will be announced Saturday. INF Vince Belnome; newcomer INF Nick Franklin, acquired in the David Price trade; and Tim Beckham, recently activated off the DL would be among the possibilities.

For what it's worth Belnome was removed from Durham's game after nine innings, with the score 0-0.
