    Josh Donaldson Dives Into Stands to Save Perfect Game (Video)

    For his second consecutive start, Toronto Blue Jays pitcher Marco Estrada took a no-hitter into the eighth inning.  And Estrada was actually pitching a perfect game during today’s no-hit bid against the Tampa Bay Rays.   But with a full count to the Rays’ David DeJesus during the first at bat in the bottom of the eighth, Estrada was […]

    When Asdrubal Cabrera sent a homer into the stands to give the Rays a 4-2 lead over Toronto on Tuesday, one brave kid reached out to snag the ball, saving his siblings.

    Rays and Red Sox Get Into Bench-Clearing Fight (Video)

    In sports, as in life, all actions have reactions. A very clear example of that happened at yesterday afternoon’s game between the Tampa Bay Rays and the Boston Red Sox. The first domino to fall was the Rays’ Yunel Escobar stealing third base in the bottom of the seventh, when the Rays were already ahead […]
