ST PETERSBURG --  Before Friday's game, Rays players and coaches spoke about how beneficial Thursday's off day was. After, manager Joe Maddon wondered if his players still thought they were on their off day.
It was that kind of game for Tampa Bay (45-37) as it dropped another one at home, this time 5-3 to the Cardinals on Friday in front of 19,934 at Tropicana Field. With the loss, the Rays are now 1-3 on their six-game homestead.

DETROIT --  Brian Wilson's emotional outburst in the Giants' dugout Friday night seemed to parallel the team's apparently imminent meltdown on the field.
Fortunately for Wilson and the Giants, Jeremy Affeldt induced Brennan Boesch's soft line drive that shortstop Brandon Crawford turned into an unassisted double play to halt the Detroit Tigers' ninth-inning rally and seal San Francisco's 4-3 Interleague victory.

DAYTONA BEACH, Florida -- Joey Logano didn't lead Friday night's Subway Jalapeno 250 until the final half mile, but that was all the 21-year-old driver of the No. 20 Toyota needed to notch his first victory at Daytona International Speedway.

As the action in Turn 4 on the final lap unfolded behind him, Logano surged into the lead and held off a charge from Jason Leffler to win his first Nationwide Series race of the season and the ninth of his career.

Logano took the checkered flag as many of the cars that had led into the final turn -- including those of Danica Patrick, Aric Almirola, Tony Stewart and Elliott Sadler -- wrecked behind him.

Leffler ran second followed by series points leader Reed Sorenson, who also claimed a $100,000 prize as the highest finisher among four drivers eligible for Nationwide's Dash 4 Cash program.

Kyle Busch came home fourth, Justin Allgaier fifth and Michael Annett sixth. Kenny Wallace skated through the infield grass and took the checkered flag in seventh position, ahead of the wrecked cars of Sadler, Almirola and Patrick, which slid across the finish line in positions 8-10, respectively.

Logano got a push from Busch to hold off Leffler as the cars approached the stripe. He finished .040 seconds ahead of the runner-up.
