Rays: Dodgers outfielders achieve triple play of homers

Today: Off

Next game: 10:05 Friday, at Angels. Probable pitchers: Rays — RH Chris Archer (1-4, 5.01); Angels — TBA

Tuesday's triple play

The Dodgers had something of a hat trick, as all three starting outfielders — Trayce Thompson, Joc Pederson, Yasiel Puig — homered. That is only the third time that has happened against the Rays, and the first since May 6, 2003, when the Twins had triplets from Jacque Jones, Torii Hunter and Dustan Mohr. Before that, it was July 23, 2002, at Boston when Manny Ramirez, Johnny Damon and Trot Nixon went deep. … The Rays have done it once — when Carl Crawford, Rocco Baldelli and Damon Hollins homered on June 30, 2006, at Washington.

World Series flashback

There were five players on the Dodgers' active roster that played in the 2008 World Series — OF Carl Crawford, LHP J.P. Howell and LHP Scott Kazmir for the Rays, RHP Joe Blanton and INF Chase Utley for the Phillies. The Rays have only one active player — 3B Evan Longoria. 1B coach Rocco Baldelli also played.

Good deed

Rays LHP Enny Romero went to Johns Hopkins All Children's Hospital on Wednesday to visit with Aldrin Silvestre, an 11-year-old from the Dominican Republic who recently came out of a coma.
