NEW YORK—Want some numbers? We’ve got ‘em.
* The 25 hits allowed today are the most ever by the Rays.
* The 21 runs and six homers have been surpassed only once—both in the same game. That was a 22-4 loss to the Red Sox on July 23, 2002 in the first game of a doubleheader that featured seven Boston homers.
* The 38 runs allowed in back-to-back games are the most in the majors since the Braves lost 16-6 to the Dodgers and 23-9 to the Reds on April 24 and 25, 1977.
* The 49 runs allowed in a series obliterates the previous Rays record of 37 set Sept. 6-9, 2004 at Yankee Stadium.
