Quote of the day

"I don't think anybody has shut it down or started thinking about offseason plans. We still all expect to be playing whenever the postseason starts in October."

Rays LHP David Price, on the team's confidence in a season comeback

Bragging rights

LHPs David Price and Cesar Ramos (right) often play golf together while on road trips, and they did again Friday at the Houston Country Club, with the underdog winning. "I finally beat him," Ramos said, smiling. "Took me about five extra rounds. I caught him on an offday." Ramos shot 80. "I played bad," Price said. "He had some really good shots."

Number of the day


Times the Rays have given up three or more runs in an inning, most in the majors.
