The Tampa Bay Rays scored early and often last night, trouncing the Toronto Blue Jays 10-1, before 15,886 at Tropicana Field.

Tampa Bay opened the scoring with 2 in the first, as Carl Crawford scored on a Kelly Shoppach single and Evan Longoria scored on a Sean Rodriguez double.

In the third, they pushed the lead to 5-0, as B.J. Upton scored on Shoppach's sac fly, Rodriguez brought home Longoria again with another double, then scored himself when Ben Zobrist singled to left.

The Rays added 2 more in the fourth on a Dionner Navarro solo homer into the left field seats and a Longoria double that chased home Upton.

The lead increased to 9-0 in the fifth. Zobrist sent a screamer to right center that cleared the wall for his fifth homer of the year, followed by a line shot homer to left by Carlos Pena.

The Blue Jays got on the board in the sixth, as Jose Bautista scored on a Lyle Overbay double, but Tampa Bay responded in their half of the sixth, with Crawford scored on a Rodriguez single. The Rays cruised from there to the 10-1 win.

Longoria and Rodriguez each went 3-for-4, with Rodriguez driving in 3 and Longoria scoring twice. Tampa Bay pounded out 15 hits in support of starter David Price, who allowed 1 earned run and 4 hits in 6 innings while fanning 4 and walking 5, to improve to 9-2. Shaun Marcum was roughed up for 7 runs(all earned) on 10 hits in his 6 innings of work, as his record slipped to 5-3.

The Tampa Bay Rays, with a record of 39-20 and 2 games ahead of the Yankees in the A.L. East, continue their home stand tonight, with the final game of the three game set with the Toronto Blue Jays. First pitch is scheduled for 7:10pm EDT tonight on 620AM WDAE, the Rays Radio Network and Sun Sports. The Rays then host the Florida Marlins for three games, Friday and Saturday at 7:20pm EDT and Sunday at 1:40pm EDT.


The game company that's to blame for billions of hours of lost productivity at work has just launched a new game called FrontierVille. The game is on Facebook now.

Voters have approved a new stadium for the San Francisco 49ers. (It's hoped that a new stadium will inspire the team to reach a higher level of mediocrity.)

Here's some good news/bad news for fans of the classic Demi Moore/Patrick Swayze film Ghost. The bad news is it's being remade; the good news is it's being remade for the Japanese market. Apparently American movies used to be bigger hits in Japan and this is Paramount Pictures' way of making money over there again.
