A perfect record couldn't last forever. And thanks to a gritty and gutsy performance by the Tampa Bay Rays, it didn't. The Rays showed character to get a win in this big series and since Cliff Lee will not pitch on short rest, anything could happen today. Hunter is good, but he's not untouchable. In the other game, the Twins never had a chance against the Yankees. Forget all this talk about the Yankees getting in the Twins heads. It was simply a case of one team being much better than the other. Over and out.
Three more games on tap for Sunday:
- The Braves over the Giants: The Braves are great at home. Sanchez is the Giants' most unreliable starter and Hudson shouldn't have trouble with the Giants' line up.
- The Phillies over the Reds: Shouldn't be a contest here. Hamels over Cueto and the Phillies get the sweep.
- The Rangers over the Bay Rays: This game is so close to call. Wade Davis is the Bay Rays Phil Hughes. On any given night he could be lights out. But going with the Rangers' line up at home.
