DETROIT -- The demeanor of Rays manager Joe Maddon didn't seem like one of a manager whose team had lost five of six games.
If just a couple breaks had gone the other way, the Rays would have won Tuesday night. Maddon knew it. But the breaks didn't come their way, and the Rays lost a second straight game to the Detroit Tigers, this one by a 7-6 score.
"If we play baseball like that on a nightly basis, I'll take it any day of the week," Maddon said.

SAN FRANCISCO --  For the first time in exactly a month, an unusual postgame silence hung over the home clubhouse at AT&T Park on Tuesday night.
The songs on the team's standard post-win playlist didn't blare from the speakers, and there was no talk of the dramatic walk-off hits and clutch plays that came to define the Giants' nine-game home winning streak, with their last loss in China Basin coming vs. the Braves on April 24. Instead, a few players spoke quietly of how Florida right-hander Ricky Nolasco kept them off balance for nearly nine innings and how the offense couldn't overcome an early deficit as the Marlins (27-19) beat the Giants (27-20), 5-1.
