CF Desmond Jennings spent part of Thursday's off-day answering questions and shooting hoops with the Jennings Juniors at St. Petersburg's Sanderlin Center, one of the three rec centers where he sponsors groups for the Rays Dugout Club.
Lost in Wednesday's loss, OF Kevin Kiermaier became the first rookie with four hits and a grand slam in the same game since 2010 (Washington's Danny Espinosa) and the first rookie in recorded history (since 1914) to do so from the No. 9 spot.

Record needed for Rays to get to .500 by July 31.
Record for Rays to get to .500 by season's end.
