And That Happened
Rays 4, Phillies 2: It wasn't a thing of beauty, but we continue to hold to script. Shields > Meyers, and the Rays do just enough on offense to get the job done. Jimmy Rollins is now 0-10 in the series, which isn't getting the job done. David Price gave up a run, so he isn't God after all. But that's cold comfort for the Phillies, who now find themselves in the same position the Red Sox found themselves in the ALCS and, really, all season: they threw a punch at the Rays, but it only grazed them. The Rays have now jabbed back to get Philly off balance, and now comes the roundhouse right.
