Gary Knotts certainly isn't guaranteed a spot in the rotation for 2005 - but he sure will leave a good lasting impression. Knotts improved his record to 7-6 on the season, going 7 2/3 innings, giving up a run on 4 hits, including 4 strikeouts.
Opposite Knotts, Scott Kazmir continued to show glimpses of greatness, but at the same that he's still not ready to display such. Kazmir gave up 4 runs in 6 innings.
At the plate, Marcus Thames had a big night, going 3-for-3 with 2 Home Runs and 3 RBI. Thames' 2 Home Runs give him 10 on the year, making him the 11th player for the club to reach double digits in Home Runs - the most players ever for a big league club. Craig Monroe also had a 2-run Home Run.
For the Rays, Jorge Cantu drove in Brook Fordyce for the team's lone run.
