Numbers of the day

18 Team-record consecutive games in which the Rays have homered, going back to Sept. 20, the longest such streak for any team since the 2013 Mariners did 23.

5 Innings, of 36, in which the Rays led at the end.

3 Rays to hit three or more homers in the first four games of a season — Jorge Cantu, 3 in 2005; Evan Longoria, 4 in 2009; Steven Souza Jr., 3 in 2016.

2-2 Rays record when trailing after seven innings; they were 7-60 last year and didn't get their second such win until Game 98 (July 24).

Quote of the day

"They beat us at our game today."
