Wild pitch bites the Bucs in the ass again.

Lead off single, followed by a wild pitch, and two fly outs leads to the Rangers first (and hopefully only), run of the game.

1-1 After 5 1/2

67 Pitches for Ortiz through 7 innings. Unreal performance by him tonight.

Offense needs to help him out.

Bucs get a hit with a runner in scoring position, but Reynolds gets hosed at home.

1-1 After 7

Play must have been reviewed, score now shows Bucs 2- Rangers 1.

ESPN App lies to me again…

Ortiz was cruising through 7, has hit a wall here in the 8th.

Walked the first two batters this inning (only BB of the game for him), got a GDP, now gives up an RBI single.

6-2 Bucs lead

You can really appreciate the outing by Ortiz tonight after watching one of the best closers in the league try to deal with this Rangers lineup.

Ortiz 7 2/3 innings gave up 2 runs

Bednar in 1 inning of work gave up 2 runs.

24 Pitch 9th inning from Bednar tonight.

Ortiz was at 67 pitches through 7 innings tonight.
