ALDS Game 1: Matt Joyce's RBI Single Gives Rays 3-0 Lead

Matt Joyce, who hit .217/.287/.370 against left handed pitching this season, added to Tampa Bay’s lead in the second inning, just barely bleeding a single through the right side of the infield past the diving Ian Kinsler, giving the Rays a 3-0 lead over the Rangers in the second inning.

Scoring on the play was Kelly Shoppach, who singled on a line drive to left field and was moved over to second base on Casey Kotchman’s groundout.
