Things worked out fine for the Tampa Bay Rays at Target Field on Friday night. They won 5-to-2 over the local nine.
Not so much, though, for Steven Souza Jr., who just missed catching Kenny Vargas’ fly ball to right field in the seventh inning.
Confirmed by a glance at instant replay. So, so close.
“Good effort,” his manager said after the game.
Souza homered in his next at bat.
