Audible 1: "We were thrilled with how everything went, especially in the first half. The great thing about the offense is that they made some plays on their own. The receivers also made some big catches." — CCC coach John Davis

Audible 2: "Our defense was good in that they created a lot of turnovers and takeaways. We've got a lot of improving to do and some conditioning. We're still pretty young, though, on defense, after losing our entire defense from last year." — Davis

Audible 3: "We are happy we played this game, because we didn't want to just play an average opponent. We wanted to play a good one." — Immokalee coach Rich Dombroski

  1. Rays let early lead get away again in loss to Angels (w/video)

    ST. PETERSBURG — As pleased as the Rays were to win consecutive series against the contending Red Sox, Indians and Yankees and to get briefly back over .500, there was a lot of talk in the clubhouse before Monday's game against the Angels that it was time to do better.

    Tampa Bay Rays third base coach Charlie Montoyo (25) high fives designated hitter Corey Dickerson (10) as he rounds third on his lead off home run in the first inning of the game between the Tampa Bay Rays and the Los Angeles Angels at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Fla. on Monday, May 22, 2017.

    OF/DH Corey Dickerson missed out on a good birthday gift when AL player of the week honors went instead to Detroit's J.D. Martinez. Dickerson hit .385 with five homers, nine RBIs and nine runs; Martinez went .389-4-9-7 and got the nod.

  3. Rays journal: Alex Cobb learning to work with what he has



    If this were 2012 or 2013, even 2014, RHP Alex Cobb would have problems. He would find himself working with only two of his three pitches, with the missing pitch being his trusty changeup.

    Alex Cobb, working mainly with his fastball and curveball, is 3-1 with a 2.78 ERA over his past five starts. The Rays right-hander tries to continue his strong stretch tonight against the Angels.
