Rays-Rangers ALDS Game 3: Desmond Jennings Homers, Rays Lead 1-0

The Rays could not find a way on base through the first three innings, but Desmond Jennings led off the bottom of the fourth, blasting Colby Lewis's first pitch into the left field bleachers. B.J. Upton following with the Rays first walk of the day, but was left on base after Lewis struck out three straight batters.

It appears Rays starter David Price may have injured his index finger, as head trainer Ron Porterfield was seen investigating Price's finger in the dugout between innings. Price had pitched quite well through the first four innings, collecting a strikeout and a pick off while allowing no runs.

Casey Kotchman shined in the first inning as he played a major role in all three outs, catching a pop-up near the first base crowd, fielding a high grounder and wisely tossing it to Price covering first, and snaring a screaming line drive off Michael Young's bat.
