Rays hit 5 homers, beat Athletics 13-4

Mike Maurer gets ready to head into the stadium with friend Doug Young and service dog Sissy before a doubleheader between the Oakland Athletics and Tampa Bay Rays at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg on Saturday

Kiermaier left the game. At the time of his injury, Smith was batting.273 with three stolen bases in 22 at-bats.

"The thing about it is, when you're running down to first base, I can't run through the bag, or else I'm going to collide with Jose Abreu, who's a big dude", Kiermaier said of sliding into first after Thursday's game. "Unfortunately, that's something I have to live with now". I think what impressed me most about him is he'll have a tough first inning and then recover.

We generally hate the slide into first base unless it's to avoid a collision, and it's possible that's what happened here.

He underwent a CT scan Friday and was placed on the 10-day disabled list.

Peralta is in the final season of a four-year, $52 million contract. The Rays have scored 20 runs in their last two games and four or more runs in seven of their last 11 games.

Tampa Bay recalled outfielder Mallex Smith, a former TinCaps star, from Triple-A Durham to replace Kiermaier.




"He's going to be out a while, " Cash told MLB Network Radio. "Everything we've heard from Triple-A - the Triple-A staff, (Bulls manager) Jared Sandberg - is that he's a game-changer defensively". The 27-year-old Kiermaier has built a reputation as one of the best defensive players in all of baseball. With the fielder's momentum carrying him directly into the path of the runner, Kiermaier elected to go into a half-slide with his left foot jamming into the bag before careening off to the side.

A's center fielder Jaycob Brugman got his first major league hit, a sixth-inning single off Ramirez. "That was one we needed, and I think he probably needed, too".

Tampa Bay Rays' Peter Bourjos (18) celebrates with Logan Morrison after scoring the game-wining run on a single by Evan Longoria off Oakland Athletics relief pitcher Liam Hendriks during the 10th inning of the first game of a scheduled baseball doubleheader Saturday, June 10, 2017, in St. Petersburg, Fla.

Nearly as big for the A's as Manaea's performance was Oakland being able to see left-handed reliever Sean Doolittle pitch in a big league game for the first time since April 29.Out with a left shoulder strain that cost him 36 games, the veteran pitched the eighth inning and made rather uneventful work of the 2-3-4 spots in the Rays' batting order.
