And That Happened
Phillies 10, Rays 2: The Rays offense has disappeared, but when Ryan Howard wakes up and decides to start crushing the ball -- and when even the pitcher jacks one out -- whatever Tampa Bay does when they're at bat is kind of an afterthought. The Rays simply look awful. It seems that whatever magic or juju they had before was left in Fenway Park, and now they have to beat Cole Hamels tonight or go home defeated. Coming back from being down 3-1 isn't impossible -- six teams out of 42 to find themselves in that situation in the World Series have done it -- but nothing in the Rays' current game suggests that they have it in them.
