Winning Streak Ends at Nine

Saturday’s 8-5 loss to the Marlins snapped the Rays’ nine-game winning streak.

Rays manager Joe Maddon could not get too upset, after all, Grapefruit League games are still just that, Grapefruit League games, where the idea is to get ready for the regular season. And there were several good things that stood out from today’s defeat.

B.J. Upton hit two home runs to the opposite field, Matt Garza continued to display dominating stuff, and Willy Aybar went deep.
