The Tampa Bay Rays are off to a strong start.
They swept the opening three-game series at Tropicana Field against Baltimore, but that’s not unusual. Since last year, the Rays have won 15 consecutive games against the Orioles and 21 of their last 22.
“We feel good,” manager Kevin Cash said. “We should be happy with the way we performed.”
It’s the first time the Rays have opened a season 3-0 since 2012 and only the third time in team history. They have never started 4-0, but will have a chance to do that Monday when they host the Oakland A’s.
