Coming up a little short

The Rays wives and girlfriends rallied late Monday but lost 10-9 to their Marlins counterparts in a charity softball game. The Rays, playing for Autism Speaks, rallied from a 10-6 deficit in the seventh and left the tying run on third. It was the first game the Rays have lost at Marlins Park, the wives winning in 2012, the real Rays winning their first five until Monday's loss.

Quote of the day

"They can't work any harder, they can't care any more, they can't try (any harder). All that stuff is there."

Rays manager Joe Maddon on his struggling hitters.

Numbers of the day

1 Game in their past 20 in which the Rays have scored a first-inning run.

26 Games in which the Rays have scored two or fewer runs, most in the AL.
