Evan Longoria sets another Rays record

Longoria hit his 30th homer of the year on Wednesday, giving him a franchise-record four seasons with at least 30 HRs, ESPN Stats & Info notes.

Stats & Info

Wednesday's longest home runs

Entering Wednesday, only two of Adonis Garcia's 10 home runs on the year eclipsed 400 feet. No. 11 passed that mark by a landslide. Manny Machado, Evan Longoria, Paul Goldschmidt and Justin Upton round out the list.

Red Sox have owned Chris Archer

Archer won his first start against the Red Sox on Sept. 19, 2012, but he's 0-10 in 14 starts since then against Boston. That's the longest current losing streak by an active pitcher against one team and the longest losing streak for one pitcher against the Red Sox since Mike Moore (10 straight) from 1987 to '92, per the Elias Sports Bureau.

Another L in the books for Chris Archer

Archer suffered his 17th loss of the season on Tuesday. He's the second pitcher in the last 40 years (Mike Maroth, 2003 Tigers) to rack up 17 losses before his team had played 125 games, ESPN Stats & Info notes.

Buchholz, Ortiz help Red Sox beat Rays 2-1

Clay Buchholz pitched into the seventh inning, David Ortiz had a run-scoring single and the Boston Red Sox beat the Tampa Bay Rays 2-1 on Tuesday night to remain tied atop the AL East.

Stats & Info

Price settling in vs. former team

David Price had lost his first three starts as a visitor at Tropicana Field but picked up the win there Monday night, allowing just two hits over eight scoreless innings. He posted similar results in his last outing against the Rays this season (July 10).

David Price accomplishes surprising feat

Price, who racked up 82 wins during his seven seasons with Tampa Bay, is only the second former Rays pitcher to win two starts against them in one season, per the Elias Sports Bureau. He joins Jason Johnson, who did it for the Orioles in 2001.

Rays hold steady in Power Rankings

The Rays have been a winning team since the All-Star break, which goes a long way in assuring fans that they aren't tanking. The negative side, however, is that they are hurting their chances at a top-five draft pick. Week 20 Power Rankings

Logan Forsythe keeps flexing his muscles

Forsythe went deep, his third consecutive game with a long ball, as part of a five-run fourth inning for Tampa Bay on Sunday. He's the second player in Rays history to homer in three consecutive games while starting in the leadoff spot in the batting order, joining Gerald Williams (July 2000), the Elias Sports Bureau notes.

Casali fits Rays' catching mold perfectly

Despite recently being optioned to the minors, Curt Casali's above-average defense across the board has saved Tampa Bay a handful of runs this season. Unfortunately, his weak bat has sabotaged some of his value behind the plate. Breakout defenders (Insider)

Miller racking up RBIs at prolific pace

Brad Miller hit a bases-clearing double in the Rays' win Saturday. Miller has been on an RBI tear lately, having driven in 20 runs over his last 15 games. In the last five seasons, the only other Rays player with that many RBIs over a 15-game span is Evan Longoria, who had 20 in 15 games earlier this year (May 28-June 14), per the Elias Sports Bureau.
