Jackson delivers and Rays win

Trever Miller walked in from the bullpen to start the ninth inning and was booed. He was booed again when he was announced as the pitcher.

That should tell you what kind of game Edwin Jackson had.

Perhaps Jackson deserved a chance at a complete game. Why not? He threw just 99 pitches (the total on the scorebaord was incorrect).

Jackson has allowed just one run in 14 innings this season.

Perhaps he turned the corner and is about to be the pitcher everyone expects him to be.

Anyway, Miller allowed a leadoff single to Adrian Beltre and was booed again.

Al Reyes is throwing in the bullpen.

Wait. Raul Ibanez just bounced into a 6-4-3 double play. Nice play by Bartlett. He went into the hole between short and third to get the ball then turned to start the double play.

Miller gets Richie Sexson looking at a fastball for strike three and that's your ball game.

Rays win 70 to snap a four-game losing streak.
