Stellar Pitching From Rays Spoils Greinke’s Debut
The Angels were shutout for the 11th time this season and second time in as many days.
They had a chance to tie things up in the ninth as Pujols came up to the plate with two men on and one out, but a groundball double play sealed the Rays 2-1 series victory.
The Angels were without super-rookie Mike Trout, who missed the game due to a sore knee. The lack of offense in his absence could help forward his MVP bid, but the Angels will need a healthy Trout come tomorrow as they open up a 10-game road trip with a 4-game series in Arlington against the AL West-leading Rangers.
