Rays 5, Angels 2: Souza leads the band



Erasmo Ramirez rebounds from a rocky first, while Steven Souza goes deep twice

I was really excited with the way this one started out. Erasmo Ramirez retired Cameron Maybin! No, really, it’s true! Grounded to third. And you just got this warm feeling that it was gonna be a good night.

The feeling didn’t last long, as Mike Trout dented the centerfield wall on a 3-2 fastball that was not well located, and Albert Pujols did what he’s done to middle-middle 3-1 fastballs for going on 17 seasons now. Just like that, it was 2-0 Angels.

But could you just trust me for once? It’s gonna be okay.

The Rays didn’t waste any time scrapping back into this game, tying things up in the second. Logan Morrison walked to lead off the frame. Then, after Ricky Nolasco made Tim Beckham and Colby Rasmus look silly on strikeouts, Steven Souza Jr. dug in, and took an 0-1 fastball deeeeeep over the fence to center.
