ST PETERSBURG -- Monday night at Tropicana Field brought October baseball to mind -- that's October 2010 baseball for the Rays, a period when a lot went wrong in the American League Division Series thanks to the Rangers.
Texas rolled into Tropicana Field for its first encounter with Tampa Bay since eliminating the Rays from the postseason. Back in October, the Rangers took care of business by claiming three wins here during the best-of-five series. On Memorial Day, the Rangers seemed to be embracing an old friend in Tropicana Field during their 11-5 win with 14,203 watching.

ST. LOUIS --  Memorial Day was a day of leisure for many Americans, including the Giants. At least by their standards.
They matched their run total from their previous four games by Monday's fourth inning. That helped becalm Madison Bumgarner, who pitched as if he were reclining in a hammock drinking lemonade. Brian Wilson warmed up in the ninth inning, but that was merely a precautionary measure. The length of the game seemed to exceed its official two-hour, 51-minute duration, mainly because it featured no compellling sequences that distracted witnesses from the time of day.
"We don't have many of those," manager Bruce Bochy said after the Giants' 7-3 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals. "It's nice not to have every pitch matter."
