Rays 9, Rangers 0
WP: Matt Moore
LP: C.J. Wilson
HR: Johnny Damon, Kelly Shoppach (2)
Series: Rays lead 1-0
Hero: Kelly Shoppach came out of nowhere to hammer two home runs. The five RBI were more than enough to send the Rays to victory.
Goat: C.J. Wilson may have lost millions on his free-agent contract when he coughed up six runs (plus one unearned) in five innings to put Texas in a hole.
Next: Saturday, October 1, , 7:07 p.m. at Rangers Ballpark, Arlington, Texas. RHP James Shields vs. LHP Derek Holland.
