Rays Rally Comes Up Short In 6-5 Loss To White Sox on Sunday

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — The digging was great, but the hole was just too deep for the Tampa Bay Rays on Sunday.

Burdened with a six-run deficit after just two innings of a brutal Ryan Yarbrough start, the Rays scratched and clawed their way back into the game, but couldn’t get all the way back in a 6-5 loss to the Chicago White Sox .

The Rays cut the lead to one in the sixth inning with a four-run outburst, the last two coming on a two-run homer from struggling catcher Mike Zunino with two outs.

But the Rays couldn’t threaten again. Of the next 10 batters, only Yandy Diaz reached base, and he got picked off. Kendall Gravemen pitched a perfect eighth inning for Chicago, and closer Liam Hendriks had a 1-2-3 ninth inning for his 16th save of the season.
