ALDS Game 1: Rays Strike First On Johnny Damon Home Run

After retiring the side in order in the top of the first, C.J. Wilson faltered in the second. Wilson hit Ben Zobrist with a pitch before Johnny Damon pulled a homer down the right field line, giving the Tampa Bay Rays a 2-0 lead over the Rangers in Game 1 of the ALDS.

Matt Moore surrendered just one hit in the bottom of the first, to Texas’ centerfielder, Josh Hamilton. Once Wilson retires the side, the Rangers will have Adrian Beltre, Mike Napoli and Nelson Cruz due up.
