The Tampa Bay Rays are looking better. Of course, they’re looking healthier which, in a way, is the same thing.

The Rays won their fourth straight game Monday night, drubbing the Chicago White Sox 8-2. It lifted the Rays to an 18-18 record on the season.

Tampa Bay has had a patchwork lineup for most of the season. But the starting llineup, at least, seems to rounding into shape.

For instance: Josh Lowe returned to play Monday night and had two hits.

For instance, Jonny DeLuca also had two hits. In four games this season, DeLuca has 10 RBI.

Harold Ramirez, who has been here all along, had four hits against the White Sox.

The Rays got a good night from their bullpen. Starter Tyler Alexander gave up two runs and four hits in four innings, but Erasmo Ramirez (three innings) and Edwin Uceta (two innings) threw five innings of no-hit, shutout baseball.

The Rays will attempt to run their streak to five games tonight against the White Sox at Tropicana Field at 6:50 p.m. Zack Eflin will start for Tampa Bay against Michael Soroka.
