The Tampa Bay Rays maintain their impressive start to the season and have managed to establish a mark that has not been seen in the Major Leagues since 1984this after getting a tight victory this Thursday against the Pittsburgh Pirates 3-2.
With this win, the Rays completed their sixth sweep of the season to bring their record to 26-6achieving the second-best record in the MLB after 32 games, trailing only the 1984 Detroit Tigers who went 27-5.
The Tampa Bay team used an impressive pitching job from the right Zach Eflin who worked for seven innings allowing just two hits and striking out 10 opponents in what was his fifth start of the season and third since coming back from the disabled list.
It should be remembered that the Tropicana Field team had the best start to the season ever winning their first 13 gamesachieving historical marks that were not seen since the last century.
In addition, they also achieved a record of more than 20 consecutive games hitting at least one home runsomething that is just a sample of the great offensive work that the Rays have done, and that keeps them leaders of the East Division of the American League, followed surprisingly by the Baltimore Orioles.
