Dodgers Dominate in Tampa Bay (J.P. Howell not so much)

May 3, 2016

The first game of the all-astroturf roadtrip brought an interleague match against the no bullpenned, dome-stadiumed Rays. It also brought plenty of ex-Jays back to Tampa, Enrique Hernandez as the DH, Joc Pederson getting his first start of the season against a southpaw, and Scott Kazmir on the mound. It was bound to have a story or two to tell – and boy, howdy – it did! 1st inning Rays…
