The Devil Rays' long and storied legacy of losing strengthened its culture of futility with an improbable loss to the Blue Jays last night. Up 11-6 heading into the ninth, the D-Rays executed a near-impossible collapse, managing to get just one out while allowing six runs to score. Although Casey Fossum took the loss, the real hero is Tim Corcoran, who threw 14 pitches and walked the final three batters of the game (the first two intentionally) to seal the defeat.
"You would like to think we could get three outs with a five-run lead," Tampa Bay manager Joe Maddon said.
Joe Maddon? Isn't he the lead singer of Good Charlotte? No wonder the D-Rays suck so hard.
Other MLB scores: Mariners win fifth straight game. Wait, what?… D-Backs beat Giants in 10 as Barry Bonds sits with shin splints. Strange: he's usually so durable… Red Sox muster only three hits in shutout against A's; game too shitty to celebrate Dice-K Day at With Leather… Padres grab first place with 1-0 win over Dodgers.
