August was a month the Tampa Bay Rays would love to forget. The Rays finished the month with a losing record for the first time since 2006 when they went 9-19. That year was manager Joe Maddon’s first season with the team.
If you cannot score runs, you cannot expect to win baseball games. That was one of the downfalls of the team in August. The Rays only scored 89 runs in August, an all-time franchise low. The previous low was 106 runs in 2006. In fact, the last time the team failed to bring 100 runners across home plate in a month was July 2009.
