Musical note of the day
With only their pitchers taking batting practice Sunday, the Rays didn't bring out a boom box to play music as they did Saturday. And the Red Sox provided an interesting sound track over the PA system, playing classical music, including Fur Elise and Canon in D.
Tribute of the day
The Rays will wear these caps with camouflage inside the logo and on the brim today in honor of Memorial Day and in support of the Welcome Back Veterans Fund.
