Souza giving back
OF Steven Souza Jr., accompanied by RHP Chris Archer, made a lunchtime visit to his high school near Seattle to share some words of inspiration with the baseball team, which had a playoff game Monday night. "Just trying to encourage them," Souza said. "We try to get involved in the community wherever we can."
RHP Alex Colome joined RHP Rafael Soriano as the only pitchers in franchise history to record the save in four consecutive games. Colome's nine saves are the most for a Rays pitcher through 29 games since RHP Fernando Rodney also had nine in 2012.
RHP Joel Peralta, who made 296 appearances for the Rays over four seasons, is with the Mariners and coming up on an impressive milestone this week — 10 years of service time in the majors. After spending last season with the Dodgers and battling injuries, Peralta, 40, said he is enjoying being in Seattle, having picked the Mariners based on familiarity with their players and the opportunity in their pen. "I went to spring training and did my thing, and now I'm here," Peralta said. "And it's been awesome. Clubhouse-wise, this is the closest to what we had in Tampa Bay."
