The Tampa Bay Rays dropped their open game against the New York Mets 11-2 in another interleague series. In game two of the series, the Rays seem to be in the same course as David Price's nice outing turned ugly mid-way through. Price had struck out eight batters through five innings of work, but started to get knocked around by the Mets offense in the fifth inning.
New York scored three runs in the fifth inning and added two more runs in the very next inning to push their lead to 5-0 over the Rays. Tampa struggled to answer the bell however, because Mets pitcher R.A. Dickey's knuckle ball gave the Rays offense fits. Tampa managed just one hit through the first five innings as Dickey struck out nine batters.
