St. Petersburg, FL. -- With all the Rays' recent problems -- including injuries like those to Jeff Keppinger, who broke his toe after a foul ball hit him while he was sitting in the dugout -- there's a feeling that the team can't catch a break.

The problems continued for Tampa Bay after the defense -- largely considered to be one of the stronger parts of the team -- committed three errors costing the team three unearned runs against Toronto in a 6-2 loss Monday at Tropicana Field in front of a crowd of 10,844. The loss was the Rays' fourth in their last five home games.

Milwaukee, WI.--
Buster Posey, who provided the Giants' early offense, spoke admiringly of his late-inning counterpart, Hector Sanchez.

"That's not easy to do, to sit on the bench for about four hours and come in and do that," Posey said. "That's impressive."

"That" was Sanchez's 14th-inning homer that shattered what seemed to be an everlasting tie and lifted the Giants to a 4-3 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers.
