Mostly I stick with updating my Rays reports with a summary of each series. Tonight's victory was sweet enough to warrant an exception.
Pitcher Scott Kazmir extended his streak of fabulous pitching by hurling seven more shutout innings against the AL Central-leading White Sox and the bullpen made it stand for a 2-0 home win and guaranteeing the Rays no worse than a series draw in the four-game set.
The White Sox have proved a tough opponent. Chicago's pitching staff is every bit as solid as the Rays and the team has much more major league experience than the upstart Rays. Playing this well against tough teams bodes well for the rest of the season, especially since Tampa Bay has only shown hints of their offensive potential.
