Rays Become First MLB Team in Modern Era to Start All Lefties
The Tampa Bay Rays are looking to turn the tide after losing three of their past four games, and are trying something unusual to get things back on track as they look to continue to hold the top spot in the American League East.
Rays’ manager Kevin Cash will put nine pure left-handers in the batting order for Friday night’s game against the Boston Red Sox who will tote right hander Andrew Triggs on the mound.
A batting order will all left-handed hitters hasn’t happened in the majors during the modern era (since 1990), according to ESPN.
