Ramos HR helps Rays beat Tigers 5-2
(ST. PETERSBURG) – Wilson Ramos is on a roll lately, and so are the Tampa Bay Rays. Ramos hit a three-run homer, five Tampa Bay pitchers combined on a five-hitter and the Rays beat the Detroit Tigers. Ramos, elected to start at catcher for the American League in next week's All-Star Game, keyed a five-run third inning when he connected off Matthew Boyd (4-8) for his 14th homer. That tied John Flaherty (1999) for the most in a season by a Tampa Bay catcher. In the final year of his contract and expected to be dealt before the July 31 trade deadline, Ramos has five homers and 15 RBI over his last 12 games. Ryne Stanek pitched two innings as the opener for the Rays on their latest bullpen day. He allowed a first-inning single to Niko Goodrum. Jose Alvarado (1-3) and Jaime Schultz followed Stanek, and both tossed two hitless innings. Detroit didn't get its second hit until John Hicks' two-out infield single in the seventh against Adam Kolarek, who allowed Nicholas Castellanos' RBI double and a run-scoring single by Goodrum in ninth. Sergio Romo got the final out for his 10th save. Tigers shortstop Jose Iglesias exited in the eighth with a bruised left hand after being hit by a pitch from Kolarek. Manager Ron Gardenhire says the X-rays were negative and Iglesias will "probably miss a day or so." The skidding Tigers have lost 17 of 21.
