BALTIMORE, MD - MAY 18: Evan Longoria #3 of the Tampa Bay Rays watches the game during the ninth inning against the Baltimore Orioles at Oriole Park at Camden Yards on May 18, 2013 in Baltimore, Maryland. Tampa Bay won the game 10-6.
That's kind of been our identity from the beginning of the year ... We've really done a good job throughout the game of continuing to tack on runs, and even when we've been down early in games, finding a way to put together good at-bats and score runs.
Their track record after seven innings has spoken for itself ... They've been really good late in the game. And Jim Johnson has been as good as they come. To be able to get to him and then tack a couple more on and be able to win a game like that, especially here in this hostile environment, is really big.
I think we’re very fortunate with the outcome of it ... With pitchers' arms, you never know how bad it can be. I think we got a pretty good break with the results of the testing.More quotes »
