in general, Tampa Bay Rays

Monday, 3 a.m.

It ended just fine. It was all those games that came before the end that were the problem.

The Tampa Bay Rays closed out their season with a 6-4 extra innings win over the Texas Rangers and a two-game winning streak. But the Rays finished with a 68-94 record, good for the second-worst record in the majors league. It was the worst record Tampa Bay has had since 2007.

The Rays, led by manager Kevin Cash, finished ahead of only the Minnesota Twins.

In the 10th inning, Richie Shaffer scored on a wild pitch, and Curt Casali doubled in Alexei Ramirez.

Alex Colome blew his third save of the season, but he was the winning pitcher.

Ramirez had four hits for the Rays, while Logan Forsythe, Shaffer and Casali each had two.

Optimistic about 2017. Guess it can’t get much worse.
