Rays miss chance at record win

The Tampa Devil Rays blew an 8-2 lead against the Arizona Diamondbacks at Chase Field and lost 10-8 in 10 innings on a 2-run homer by Chris Young.

The win snapped Tampa Bay's winning streak over their fellow class of 1998 expansion member Arizona at seven games. Tampa Bay could have become the first team since the Houston Astros to win eight straight games against a team right out of the box. In 1969, the Montreal Expos dropped their first eight games to the Astros, before the Expos sneaked out a 1-0 win in the second game of a doubleheader on August 3, 1969. The Expos then lost six straight to Houston over the next two seasons. Houston leads that alltime series 226-177.

There are a few teams that could threaten the Astros mark, at least for regular season play. The Yankees have won all six regular season contests against Pittsburgh and Tampa Bay has lost six straight to Cincinnati. There are several other teams which have 3-0 leads over another.

and it was quite a game too. One can only wonder just how awesome things could be if Mark Grace and Bob T combine their powers for good (or for that matter for evil too, just to see what happens)...
