SEATTLE --  Maybe the Rays finally went far enough West for good things to start happening.

After finding frustration in Kansas City and Oakland on the first two legs of a 10-game road trip, Tampa Bay unpacked its bats in Seattle, unleashing an eight-run second inning during an 8-0 win in the Emerald City.

The Rays moved to 55-50 on the season while gaining ground on first-place Boston in the American League East and Wild-Card-leading New York, leaving Tampa Bay 9 1/2 and 7 games back, respectively, in both races. Tampa Bay is now 3-5 on the road trip, so it has a chance to break even with wins on Saturday and Sunday before heading back to Tropicana Field to begin a three-game series against Toronto on Tuesday night.

The American Federation of Radio Artists (AFRA) was organized on this date in 1937 as a part of the American Federation of Labor.


CINCINNATI -- Both the expected and the unexpected conspired Friday night against the Giants.

The result was a 4-3, 13-inning loss to the Cincinnati Reds, who received a tiebreaking single from Edgar Renteria, the hero of last year's World Series-clinching victory for the Giants.

"He's the only guy I don't want [to see] in that situation," Giants third baseman Pablo Sandoval said in a grudging tribute to his ex-teammate.
