This just in. The Tampa Bay Rays found some offense. More specifically, the heart and soul of their offense finally broke out of a playoffs-long slump and hit two home runs in Game 2.
Brandon Lowe, rhymes with how, came into the World Series batting .107 for the post-season and looking totally lost. His manager kept batting him second because he said Lowe was their best hitter all year and would figure it out.
He finally did. In a big way. With a solo home run in the first and a two-run homer in the fifth. Suddenly, the team that had trouble scoring more than three runs was sitting on six.
The team that was overmatched and out-everything, scored more runs than the team that is all-everything.
And the World Series is tied again. The Rays won 6-4 to even the series at a game apiece.
It’s really hard to win when only one of your players is hitting. The Rays managed to win three playoff series that way.
This final one, they are going to need guys like Brandon Lowe, rhymes with how, to do something.
Last night he did something. Twice.
And in the process, the Rays set a record for home runs in the post-season with 28.
If you can’t hit, it helps to be able to hit one far occassionally.
NO GAME TODAY.
