KANSAS CITY -- When you're trying to find the way to an American League East title, you never want Zack Greinke standing in your path.

The Rays ran smack into Kansas City's reigning AL Cy Young Award winner Thursday night and suffered a 3-2 loss that sent them back into a tie with the Yankees for the division lead with three games remaining.

Read the rest here.

Notes: James Shields (13-14, 5.04) pitches for the Rays tonight against Kansas City's Bruce Chen (11-7, 4.45) in the second game of this season ending four-game set....Tampa Bay's Dan Johnson collected his first stolen base in Thursday's second inning. Johnson had gone 365 games over five big league seasons without swiping a single bag. He was caught stealing once during his 2005 rookie season with the A's....The Rays tweaked their rotation for the final two games of the regular season, pushing Wade Davis, who had been tabbed for Saturday's game, to Sunday. The Rays had yet to announce who would replace Davis as Saturday's starter.


Today is the International Day of Older Persons Day. (My day to celebrate!)
