The Road for the Rays leads to October

Rays beat the Rangers in game 163.



Willie Nelson sang "On the road again". The Police sang "Man in a suitcase". Whether it's "What a long strange trip it's been" by the Dead, or a "Road to nowhere" by the Talking Heads, the Rays must have heard them all.

This road trip began last week, when the Rays left Florida to play the Yankees. There was no guarantee they would play another home game at Tropicana Field this year. There still isn't. They played through the drama of Mariano Rivera's farewell to New York City. They left the country, and ended the schedule in Toronto.
 

But an extra game was added in Texas.
 On Minday night, the Rays proved to be road warriors by eliminating the Rangers 5-2.

David Price pitched a complete game. Evan Longoria hit a two run homerun. The road trip continues to Cleveland
 Wednesday night to face the Indians. It will be another one game elimination. If Tampa Bay can win there, the road trip continues to Boston.

It was the end of the road and the end of the season for the Rangers. For the second year in a row, the Rangers failed to keep pace with the A's down the stretch. It may also be the end of the road for manager Ron Washington. It doesn't quite seem fair, Washington managed the Rangers to back-to-back World Series appearances in 2010 and 2011.  But last year, the Rangers lost to the Orioles in the wildcard game. This year, they lost in the tiebreaker to make it to that game. The manager's future is in doubt.
