Quote of the day
"We've got to play a better game of baseball. We won today. I'm happy. But things have got to get better."
Rays manager Joe Maddon, on the 4-3 win
RHP Kirby Yates (left) enjoyed the spoils of his first big-league road trip over the weekend, from the comfy charter flights (instead of commercial) to food spreads to not having to share a room with a teammate. "It's endless," Yates said. "Everything is better."
Father's Day gift
Hitting coach Derek Shelton (below) had his father, Ron, join him on the Rays' trip to Houston over the weekend, figuring it'd be a cool Father's Day gift. Ron had never been on a Rays trip but did go with Derek when he coached the MLB All-Stars in Taiwan in 2011. "I thought it'd be a cool memory," Derek said.
