Rays Notes: A Comeback for the Ages


On Saturday night in Los Angeles, the Angels honored their 2002 World Series team, with two Rays taking part.

One team played like a champion on Saturday. The Rays came back from an 8-0 deficit with 10 unanswered runs in a dramatic 10-8 win that will be remembered for a long time. Dave Haller tweeted this when the Rays were down 8-0.

That feat has now been equaled.

#Rays Pena: “What a great comeback. We showed a lot of heart.”

#Rays@samfuld5 said they were channeling Game 162 a bit tonight: “The similarities were pretty amazing. … It’s pretty freaky.”

Ironic since he also won Game 162 after a huge #Rays comeback RT @ramedy: McGee with the ol’ 5-pitch win

Elliot Johnson has been in a funk of late in the batter’s box, but as a good luck charm, he’s as hot as they come.

What an incredible game and it has the potential to be the start of something special.
