ST. PETERSBURG — The Tampa Bay Rays were glad to be back home on Thursday, but climate-controlled Tropicana Field couldn’t help heat up their bats.
Prior to the game, the Rays were hoping it might. Their offense plated 31 runs over a seven-game homestand to open the season, but the bats fell flat as soon as they left St. Pete. The Rays scored 14 runs during an eight-game swing through Kansas City, Cincinnati and Baltimore with their three wins coming by the scores of 1-0, 2-1 and 1-0.
