Rays-Orioles: Tampa Bay Offense Does Just Enough

Steven WynockerCorrespondent IMay 24, 2008

Matt Garza was strong yet again as he hurled seven plus innings of shutout ball to shutout the O's in Tampa Friday night.  Garza gave up only four hits while striking out four to record his third win of the season. 

The winning run came in the fifth inning as Carl Crawford singled through the hole at second base to plate Eric Hinske. 

The Rays would add an insurance run in the eighth when Carlos Pena hit a long sac fly to score Upton from third.

The Rays’ offense was limited again as they put up just five hits. 

Maybe a shake up in the lineup is in the near future for Maddon, but as Rays’ fans say," What will Maddon do?"  It always seems to be a mystery to me and everyone else.

Rocco Baldelli made an appearance yesterday hitting batting practice on the field. He looked good as he was seen spraying balls all over field and some out of the park. 

Is a return in the future for him?  One can only hope, but in this case I will believe it when I see it.

The Rays will send Edwin Jackson against former Ray Steve Trachsel.  Following the game, the Commodores will be on stage for a post game concert.
