Memory of the day
Walking into the visiting clubhouse in Arlington stirred some special memories for the Rays. That's because their last visit was a big party, as they were squirting champagne in celebration of winning Game 163 and earning their way into the wild-card game. "I remember jumping in David (Price)'s arms and celebrating," RHP Jeremy Hellickson. "It was just a good time … a lot of fun."
