Tampa Bay Rays
Wil Myers gives the Rays legitimate power in the middle of the batting order.
Nolan Arenado was called up to the majors last week after the Rockies traded third baseman Chris Nelson to the Yankees. On Sunday, he hit his first grand slam off of the Tampa Bay Rays’ David Price.
Alex Cobb pitched effectively into the seventh inning, withstanding three solo homers by Colorado and helping the Tampa Bay Rays beat the Rockies 8-3 Sunday.
The Colorado Rockies activated first baseman Todd Helton and right-hander Jhoulys Chacin from the 15-day disabled list and both were in the lineup for Sunday’s game against the Tampa Bay Rays.
Evan Longoria hit a tiebreaking single in the 10th inning and Kelly Johnson later added a two-run homer, helping the Tampa Bay Rays to a 7-4 win over the Colorado Rockies.
Coming into the 2012 season, Matt Moore was likely the most-hyped pitching prospect in baseball – not without good reason.
