Rays Blanked Again by Astros

Astros again blanked the Rays, but McClanahan leaves early and claims he's well.

The Houston Astros blanked the Tampa Bay Rays for the second straight night.

The Tampa Bay Rays hope that their Tuesday loss of a baseball game was all they suffered.

The Houston Astros, the top team in the American League, shut out the Rays for the second straight night as they suffered a 5-0 loss at Tropicana Field.

I battled to stay in the game, and now I feel good. Five seconds later, I was alright," McClanahan claimed.

McClanahan threw 80 pitches and was given the blame for all five runs.
