RAYS 1, Kansas City 4
Aside from wondering whether James Shields did something to deserve the utter lack of support he gets from his position-playing teammates, I've got very little to say about this game.
James Shields threw seven excellent innings.
Everything else about the game.
Game four of this series, in which the Rays should have been looking for a sweep of the Royals prior to welcoming the Red Sox, is currently in progress (as of now, I'm listing to Dave and Andy over the internets). Though it is still mathematically possible for the Rays to make the playoffs this year, they're gonna need to play better than they did yesterday, and they're gonna need some help from the rest of the division. And from the Rangers.
