Series By The Numbers: Rays @ Rangers


Well, it was bound to happen: The Rangers have dropped their first series to their playoff nemesis from Tampa Bay. They had their opportunities throughout the weekend, but fell short on Sunday several times with runners in scoring position and even a downpour in the ninth couldn’t help the Rangers to their seventh straight series win.
