Tampa Bay Rays Notes, Quotes 2008-05-30
--RHP Edwin Jackson felt more comfortable than in his previous start, in which he posted a victory. Maybe it's better when he's uncomfortable. He took the loss, allowing four runs in six innings.

--SS Jason Bartlett stole a career-high three bases but twice was stranded on third base.

--CF B.J. Upton made a spectacular throw from the warning track to Evan Longoria at third base to hold Chicago's Orlando Cabrera to a double.

--DH Willie Aybar was activated off the disabled list and had a double. He had been sidelined since April 10 with a sore left hamstring.

--1B Carlos Pena failed to put the ball in play in the third inning, striking out with the bases loaded and one out. Moments later, 3B Evan Longoria grounded into a fielder's choice to end the threat.

BY THE NUMBERS: 10 -- Games above .500 after play May 25, the most in franchise history, at 30-20.

QUOTE TO NOTE: "I didn't think I had that many muscles." -- LF Carl Crawford, joking about being depicted as a super hero on the cover of Sports Illustrated.
