Tampa Bay Rays Notes, Quotes 2009-09-07

Tampa Bay Rays Notes, Quotes 2009-09-07--3B Evan Longoria's second-inning homer Sunday pushed his RBI total to 100, and he joined Carlos Pena in triple digits to give the Rays their first-ever pair of 100 RBI-men. He's also set a career high with 28 homers.

--RHP Wade Davis made "about as good a debut as you could possibly make," in the words of manager Joe Maddon, as he held the hard-hitting Tigers to just three hits and one run over seven innings Sunday, striking out nine, including the first four he faced.

BY THE NUMBERS: 3 -- Rookies in the Rays' rotation for the September stretch (RHP Jeff Niemann, LHP David Price and RHP Wade Davis).

QUOTE TO NOTE: "It's a real bad time for us to have these things happen." -- INF/OF Ben Zobrist, on the string of late-inning collapses.
