RECENT TRENDS
NEWS

Covers Preview - James Loney shook off a slow start and is starting to swing like the clutch, productive hitter he was in his first season with the Tampa Bay Rays in 2013. Loney looks to extend his streak of multi-hit games to five when the Rays host the Minnesota Twins in the second of a three-game series Wednesday. Loney, who batted .299 last year, has seven RBIs in his last four contests and delivered a two-run single in the first inning during a 7-3 victory in Tuesday’s series opener.
