Rays Matt Moore Departs Game With Injury

Rays Lose Moore To Injury, Trail Royals 1-0 After Five Innings

Matt Moore was up in the count on Norichicka Aoki 1-2 when he released a pitch – upon his follow through clenched his fist and grimaced.

Catcher Ryan Hanigan, Joe Maddon, and the teams trainer came out to the mound to talk to Moore who was removed from the game.

Cesar Ramos came in to replace Moore and struck out Aoki on one-pitch, walked Omar Infante, and retired Eric Hosmer on a fly ball to center to end the inning.



I am a fan of all sports but am most passionate about baseball. From the fanatical to analytical, nothing about the game escapes me. Being born and raised in Northeast Ohio I'm very familiar with the heartache and pain that sports can bring and hope that I bring some understanding of the other side to my coverage. I will focus mostly on baseball but also cover the Tampa Bay Lightning, one of the most electric franchises in all of sports. Always willing to converse about any sport and have only one rule and that is be respectful at all times.
