Tough act to follow
RHP Jeremy Hellickson always enjoys his visits to All Children's Hospital, saying it makes him feel good to put smiles on the kids' faces during their tough times. But Hellickson wasn't the main attraction Tuesday morning. "I was over there with Raymond (Tuesday), so I didn't get as much attention as I did the last time," Hellickson said with a smile. "He stole (the spotlight)."
Twitter talk of the day
OF Sam Fuld will participate in a Twitter Q&A with the American Diabetes Association today from 2-2:45 p.m. to discuss how he has overcome Type 1 diabetes to become a professional athlete. Fans can tweet Fuld questions and follow along by using the hashtag #SuperSamChat.
Number of the day
Consecutive errorless games by the Rays, a streak snapped by RHP Chris Archer's throwing error in the sixth Tuesday, one game shy of matching the club record (10, three times, last July 28 to Aug. 7, 2011)
