PHILADELPHIA — Even when the offense has struggled to score, even when the defense has been occasionally shaky, the Rays have been able to count on their pitching.But that is starting to show some cracks, too.Reliever Brandon Gomes continued to struggle, failing to hold a 3-2 lead Wednesday against the Phillies by allowing hits to three of the four batters he faced in the fifth, the sixth time in his past 13 outings he has given up runs."Just poor execution," he said. "And bad timing for it today. That one's on me."Thanks to Logan Forsythe 's tying homer in the seventh and a replay review that kept the Phillies from taking the lead in the eighth, the Rays got to the ninth with All-Star Brad Boxberger on the mound.But when he got three outs on nine pitches, the Rays, who had already used four other relievers, decided to send him back out for the 10th. That didn't go as well, as Boxberger gave up two hits and the winning run and made it clear he doesn't feel his stuff is as sharp when working a second inning."It was not the same," Boxberger said. "But it's something I'll have to deal with to go out there for the second inning and keep us in the game."That all came after RHP Jake Odor izzi got them off to a bad start, allowing two runs in a 30-pitch, four-hit first that he didn't think was that bad.Odorizzi got better from there, despite being drilled on the right hip by a line drive in the fourth. But the Rays decided, as they have been, on the early hook with a 3-2 lead even though he had thrown only 83 pitches and pinch-hit for him with one out and none on in the sixth to put the game in the hands of the pen."Not too happy about, but it's not my call," Odorizzi said. "So we'll leave it at that." ON THE RUN: INF Logan Forsythe looked as if he could have put the Rays ahead when he was on third in the ninth and David DeJesus got in a rundown between first and second. But he said he wanted to be cautious as there were no outs when James Loney hit the ground ball to start the sequence that ended in a double play, and there was no real chance as the Phillies made three throws. "They were having quick exchanges," he said. "There wasn't really anything I could do." Jake Elmore made the third out on a fine play by Andres Blanco at third. COMPETITIVE IMBALANCE: The Rays will have an additional pick after the second round of the 2016 draft, winning the last of the 12 extra slots awarded in the competitive balance lottery. It was the second time in the four years of the lottery they got a pick, selecting RHP Brent Honeywell in 2014. Among the teams who got a higher extra pick in the process implemented to help low-revenue clubs were the Rockies, Diamondbacks and Orioles. HOMER HAPPY: Technically, RHP Nathan Karns said it was a bigger deal to pitch five innings Tuesday as bad as he was feeling. But, realistically, hitting a homer for the only run in the 1-0 win was much better, from the hundreds of text messages to the SportsCenter interview to the phone call with his parents and especially his trip around the bases. "I was just having a blast," Karns said. "The best 10 seconds of my life."
