Rays Beat Braves in Spring Training Opener 9-7 in Dramatic Fashion

All is well again in the Tampa Bay Area as the Tampa Bay Rays Baseball is back, and boy did the Rays give us one hell of a welcome back after losing in 6 games to the Los Angeles Dodgers in the shortened 2020 season. Rays got back to business and started the revenge tour.

Tampa Bay Rays blasted 3 Home Runs in the 9-7 final over the Atlanta Braves in 7 innings as infielder Tristan Gray (who is not on the active roster) hit a two-run homer with two out in the seventh to win the game for the Rays, as always the early round set of games in the Spring Training will only be 7 innings and once it gets closer to the Regular Season we will see the full 9 inning games .

When the usual’s were in the contest, Austin Meadows homered on a line to right-center, later on to a four-run second inning, to take a then 4-1 Rays lead,  Willy Adames and Manuel Margot had back-to-back doubles in the inning. The next inning, Mike Brosseau hit a solo homer off the southpaw Sean Newcomb as seen below via Rays Twitter.

And incase you didn’t get a chance to listen/be at the game here’s the walk-off Home Run to beat the Braves from the newcomer. Tomorrow Monday, March 1st Tyler Glasnow will get the ball vs the Minnesota Twins 1pm game time start and can be heard on WDAE 95.3/620 AM or if you have Sirius XM channel 866 on the mobile app,
