Tough interviewer

Rays OF Brandon Guyer couldn't really turn down his pregame interview request Monday: it came from his wife, Lindsay Murphy, a sports anchor for the Washington, D.C. Fox affiliate. They met when she interviewed him at the University of Virginia. "This is our first interview since then," Murphy said. "Besides me grilling him at home — 'Why would you swing at that pitch?' " Check for highlights.

The Rays way

In their previous five games before Monday, the Rays were 3-0 when scoring two or fewer runs, 0-2 when scoring three or more.

Number of the day


Rays called up on this road trip, including LHP Jeff Beliveau twice.

    RHP Alex Cobb hates to hear how he "battled through" or "grinded out" a start rather than just dominated, but that's kind of what he did Friday, allowing nine hits and a walk and being charged with two wild pitches but only three runs in earning his 12th win.

  3. Lightning's Steven Stamkos looks close to top form in first game since November

    Lightning Strikes

    TAMPA — The wait felt like forever for Lightning captain Steven Stamkos, having gone 10 months without playing in a game.

    A scramble in front of the Lightning goal has Matthew Peca, far left, and Erik Cernak, middle, helping out goalie Andrei Vasilevskiy during the third period of a 3-1 win against the Predators. Vasilevskiy, who made 29 saves, was “exceptional,” coach Jon Cooper says.
