Big Heart James
RHP James Shields grew up in Southern California but considers Tampa Bay his "adopted community" since he has lived here the past 11 years while with the Rays organization. Shields and his wife, Ryane, have given back often, and for that he was recognized before Saturday's game as the Rays recipient of the Roberto Clemente Award, given to the player who best represents the game on and off the field. "To me, it's one of the best awards out there," Shields said. "It's a great honor."
Number of the day
8 Scoreless innings by the Rays bullpen Saturday night, setting a club record. The previous best was 7⅔ innings on April 29, 2004.
