A little lacking on the offense again. The pitchers:
- Marc Rzepczynski pitched the first 3 innings, no hits, 2 walks and a strikeout. He also hit a batter and got a double play turned for him. Nice job by Scrabble.
- Octavio Dotel got some luck. He got a strikeout, then gave up 2 singles and a wild pitch, but a fly ball to Juan Rivera and a good throw to the plate got him a double play to get out of the inning.
- Casey Janssen pitched a perfect inning with 2 ks.
- David Purcey came in to start the 6th inning and walked the first 3 guys he saw. Brad Mills bailed him out though, coming with bases loaded and no outs, Mills got a quick strikeout and a double play. Brad pitched 3 innings, gave up a solo homer, 5 hits and struck out 2.
- Rommie Lewis started the 9th. Single, sac bunt and line out before Winson Abreu came in and gave up the triple that tied the game.
- Mike Hinchley pitched the 9th and took the loss. A lead off double and a 2 out single scored the run for the Rays.
