  • Don’t forget to check out our Rays/Red Sox series preview.
  • Rays Win, 3-0 AKA: How Sweep It Is!

The Tampa Bay Rays are set to leave St. Louis on a high note following a 3-0 — 15 strikeout — shutout of the Cardinals. They’ve now won two consecutive road series via the sweep, and are winners of seven straight. 

Alex Cobb was back to his dominant form, tossing seven excellent innings of 10 strikeout ball. He was followed by the tandem of Brad Boxberger and Jake McGee, both of which combined for a pair of 1-2-3 innings to close out the game — ringing up five in the process. Consider this: Of the 54 total outs, split between two games, more than half (28) came as strikeouts by the Rays pitching staff. 

The Rays end the night 7.0 out of first in the AL East, 4.5 out in the Wildcard race, and 1.5 ahead of the Red Sox who will are scheduled to start a three game series at the Trop, Friday.

We’ll recap the game later. Let’s Go Rays!
