Do the Tampa Bay Rays have to leave Miami? Are you sure they can’t stick around for another game or 10?

The Rays, once again, jumped on the Marlins in a  5-3 victory Wednesday night. The Rays have now won 23 of the last 26 games the teams have played.

The Rays reached .500 again  with the victory, and are now 31-31 on the season.

Once again, Isaac Paredes led the offense. He had a pair of doubles and drove in three runs to lead the attack. Brandon Lowe had two hits.

When the Rays are good, a lot of it has to do with their bullpen. In this one, they went five innings with five relievers. They gave up just one run and four hits in the span.

Pete Fairbanks had the save, his eighth, with a 1-2-3 ninth.

The Rays are off today. They are home at Tropicana Field at 6:50 p.m. against Baltimore on Friday.
