Even the new history of the club, which was as bitter as the defeat, was engraved.
The 19-point loss is the largest loss in Tampa Bay team history. It surpassed the previous record of 18 points in a 4-22 loss to Boston in Game 1 of a doubleheader on July 24, 2002.
The number of conceded 20 runs in one game is about to be counted on one hand. It was the third most runs in club history, following 22 runs against Boston and a 4-21 loss against the New York Yankees on July 23, 2007. August 12, 2021 8-20 loss and tie against Boston.
The 27 hits allowed by Toronto on this day are also the most hits in a game. Previously, it was 25 hits against the Yankees on July 23, 2007.
Toronto is already the team that suffered the most regrettable loss to Tampa Bay this year.
Tampa Bay continued to accumulate victories with the opening of this season. He won 13 games in a row, tying the record for the most consecutive wins in a major league season since 1901.
However, Toronto is the team that put Tampa Bay on the verge of setting a new record. Tampa Bay lost to Toronto 3-6 on the 15th of last month, and the challenge to set a new record of 14 consecutive wins from the opening was canceled.
Tampa Bay, which was trailing 0-4 that day, gave up 6 runs in the 5th inning and lost the game early.
In the top of the ninth, when the score was 1-11, outfielder Luke Reilly was put on the mound. It was an operation to save the pitcher in a situation where defeat was already deep, but it soon became an excuse to give up 9 more runs only in the 9th inning.
Facing Rayleigh, Toronto’s batting line started to hit harder.
Toronto’s Vladimir Guerrero Jr. hit a grand total, and Matt Chapman drew a two-run arch. Tampa Bay lowered Rayleigh and raised catcher Christian Betancourt as pitcher again.
Betancourt, who took over the mound at 1-17, allowed a timely hit to Dolton Basho and a two-run home run to Danny Jansen, eventually widening the score to 1-20.
