Rays Seek Redemption at “The House That Ruth Built”
After tonight’s loss against the Kansas City Royals at Tropicana Field, the Tampa Bay Rays (record 55-33) will have little time to sulk before they take the show back to Yankee Stadium. The Rays, the first place team in the majors, have tasted defeat only twice in 13 games. Regardless that they won five out of the last six games on the road, their record at New York this year is only 2-2, and the Yanks are ready for a fight after losing three out of four at Tampa in May. Be prepared for a duel this Tuesday and Wednesday, as Raymond the Seadog makes an appearance at the soon-to-be-no-more Yankee Sadium. You can get tickets to the match-up on Wednesday, or catch some sun and some fouls in Tampa Bay this year. If you decide to visit the park in Tampa, make sure to stop over and pet the Cownose rays located in clear view of play behind the center field wall.
