Tampa Bay Rays

Marc Topkin’s takeaways from Sunday’s Rays-Twins game

There are times when Rays OF Carlos Gomez looks lackadaisical, but he made an urgent dash in from rightfield to near the mound when the benches first cleared and was ready for any action. Reminiscent of Jonny Gomes in '08.

The loss is still what mattered most, but the Rays showed a lot of fight — literally and figuratively — after losing the lead in the seventh, when it would have been easy to fold on a smoking hot day with flights to catch to start the All-Star break.

INF Daniel Robertson is only in his second year, but he has the makings of emerging as a team leader given his aggressive actions in defending the Rays pitchers, whether Eduardo Escobar's slight was real or imagined.
