In a tough series over the Detroit Tigers, Tampa Bay has really been able to hold their own. With some great victories to their name in recent weeks, the Rays are looking stronger than ever. Their most recent game on Wednesday has put them in a sweet spot; it ended 7-4 with the Rays on top.

Detroit has some great teams; the Tigers are one of the tougher teams in the nation, but they couldn’t stand up to the Tampa Bay Rays. Fueled by some amazing performances, the perfect game by Garza is fresh in the memory of the team as they move onwards to bigger and better things.

Tampa has some of the best hitters around, and they brought their a-game to the field on Wednesday. Knowing they needed a strong finish, they put it all into the game. Evan Longoria hit a two-run homer in the eighth, and the pitching team pushed as hard as they could to secure the win.

Starter Jeff Niemann had a decent time against a very tough team. He allowed four runs, and eight hits in six innings. The offensive lineup for the Rays put the game away against the struggling Tigers, who have had a bad stretch of games on the road. They have lost nine straight road games and are 3-11 since the All-Star break. Despite losing, their top-notch players are putting out some great numbers. Cabrera nailed his 25th homer of the season, and Johnny Damon also homered for the Tigers.

Tampa swung right back with their own heavy hitters, Jason Bartlett nailed a run-scoring single and Rafael Soriano pitched the ninth for his career-high 28th save. The only thing these guys need to do to hold onto their leading streak is to just maintain focus, and keep playing with conviction.
