Optimistic view of the day

After they swept the Angels, you would think the Rays would be disappointed to finish the road trip 3-3. RHP Chris Archer found good in how they played:

"Yeah, it's 3-3, and it would be considered a good road trip. But if you look deeper I think it was better than good, it was a great road trip in the sense of how we played, the heart that we displayed.''
