A Zim memory

Four days after posting a photo on Twitter of a sign for the late Don Zimmer's beloved Derby Lane, the sign showed up at Tropicana Field as a gift from the greyhound track in St. Petersburg to manager Joe Maddon. "I'm staggered by that," Maddon said. "I mean that sincerely." Maddon plans to get the sign restored. He isn't sure where he'll display it.

Numbers of the day

31 Consecutive scoreless innings for the Rays before Matt Joyce's RBI single in the fourth.

21 Consecutive hitless at-bats with runners in scoring position before Joyce's single.

Quote of the day

"It's good to be home. It feels great. There's a lot of family here today. It's always a pleasure to connect with both sides, Mom and Dad's side of the family."

Tampa's Tony La Russa, who threw out the first pitch

  1. State baseball: Unbeaten Calvary Christian makes it 29 straight wins, reaches final

    Baseballpreps

    FORT MYERS — Calvary Christian is one game from season-long perfection. And its first state championship.

     Calvary Christian players celebrate their win after the FHSAA class 4A semi-final against American Heritage on Friday May 26, 2017 at Hammond Stadium in Fort Myers, Fla. Calvary defeated American Heritage 7 to 1. Calvary takes on Pensacola Catholic in the championship tomorrow night, at Hammond Stadium.
  2. USF eliminated by UCF in AAC baseball; Florida, FSU, Miami win

    Colleges

    CLEARWATER — Roughly 16 hours after a ninth-inning collapse against East Carolina in the American Athletic Conference's double-elimination baseball tournament, USF returned to Spectrum Field presumably set for a reboot.

    It simply got booted instead.

    ’NOLES win: Tyler Holton gets a hug from Drew Carlton after his strong eight innings help Florida State beat Louisville.
  3. Rays journal: Rookie Daniel Robertson takes pride in sparkling defense

    The Heater

    MINNEAPOLIS — Rookie INF Daniel Robertson has earned raves for his defensive play at both second base and shortstop, making a highlight play almost every game he starts, including one in the fifth inning Friday.

  4. Marc Topkin's takeaways from Friday's Rays-Twins game

    The Heater

    DH/LF Corey Dickerson has gotten more attention, but 1B Logan Morrison has had a tremendous first two months. His fourth-inning homer Friday was his team-leading 13th, one shy of his total for 107 games last season, and gave him 34 RBIs.

  5. Rowdies anxious to get back on track

    Soccer

    ST. PETERSBURG — Having already played four matches in less than two weeks' time, the Rowdies have to turn around again on short rest to host Saint Louis FC today.

    And they're actually glad about it.
