If last night was another in a long season of frustrating, tough losses then tonight was the exact opposite.

There's virtually nothing negative to say about the way the Rays performed tonight. Every starter either knocked in and/or scored a run. Chris Archer was dominant, and Brandon Gomes pitched the final two innings, allowing the team to rest it's exhausted bullpen. The only way the night could have been better was if Archer had thrown a perfect game.

The 25-year-old righty got off to a rocky start by walking two batters in the first inning, but had his way with the Rangers' lineup from there on, striking out a career high twelve en route to his eighth victory.

His most effective pitch by far was the slider. He threw it 29 times, picking up eight whiffs and eight of his twelve strikeouts.
