Rays 3 Blue Jays 1 Just a terrific outing from Robbie Ray. 7 innings, 5 hits, 1 earned, no walks, and 7 strikeouts. The only Ray he had trouble with was Mike Zunino. Unfortunately, Zunino homered off him and then hit a double in the seventh, but was stranded at second that time. Old guys like me like to see a pitcher go seven innings. Ray threw 109 pitches. It is hard to believe that he has figured out how not to walk anyone at this point in his career. Unfortunately, Anthony Castro, in his first game back from the IL, wasn’t as good.
