Rays Fall To O’s For Fourth Straight Loss

[1]Relatively speaking — and that’s the key phrase — the Rays looked better Tuesday night.

Not good enough to avoid a 5-4 loss to the Orioles that was their fourth straight, and seventh in eight games — which dropped them to a franchise-worst-matching 4-9 through 13 games — but better.

“I thought it was a great game,” manager Joe Maddon said. “I was really pleased with our guys. I know some people might not understand that, but you’ve got to build a little bit at a time to get back to where you normally want to be. I was really pleased with the attitude, the effort. Not the results, but that’ll come.”

Most encouraging was some spark from the offense: better at-bats, more patience, harder contact, even increased production.
