Jake Faria gets 1st win since July, Tampa Bay Rays beat Texas Rangers 4-2
Jake Faria was aggressive in the strike zone and it helped him end a long winless drought. Faria won for the first time since last July 25, allowing one run over six innings to lead the Tampa Bay Rays over the Cole Hamels and the Texas Rangers 4-2 on Wednesday. Faria (1-1) struck out six and walked one. He had been 0-4 in eight starts and two relief appearances since beating Baltimore.
A startling comeback on the final day of the regular season (Sept. 28) carried the Tampa Bay Rays back to the playoffs.
