The Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim scored three in the first against Jeremy Hellickson, and held on late, beating the Rays 5-3 on Friday night. The Rays, who loaded the bases in the ninth with none out, but did not score, fell to 53-56 overall, 4-3 on their nine-game home stand.
The Rays now have the longest win streak in the Joe Maddon era after a 3-0 win on Saturday night over Boston. With nine straight victories, the Rays are now just two under .500 at 51-53, and have pulled within 6.5 games of first place Baltimore, and 3.5 games of Toronto and New York for the second wildcard spot.
The Rays waited out Juan Carlos Oviedo’s rehab from Tommy John surgery in hopes that he would emerge as a valuable piece in their bullpen this season, but he was designated for assignment this afternoon in order to make way for Jeremy Hellickson’s return from the minors. 108 more words
