You know your season is butt terrible when you have to go to a position player to pitch thrice in one year. But that's the kind of thing that happens when you're trailing the Rays 10-1, have a rookie make his debut in a game when he arrived after first pitch, and every starting pitcher from your expected rotation is now on the disabled list.

Player of the Game: Congratulations to Alex Claudio for making the trip to Arlington mid-game and making his ML debut. Claudio debuted his funky delivery and crazy change-up while pitching a scoreless inning and collecting his first big league strikeout.
