The GCL Rays beat the rain but not the GCL Red Sox as they fell 6-2 on Monday at Charlotte Sports Park. On a day when the radar looked like rain would be the victor, the Rays were unable to find a way to overcome an earlier deficit as they lost the game and more importantly, lost a game in the standings.

The Red Sox scored first in the third inning. Derek Miller delivered an RBI double to right to score Michael Chavis and give the Red Sox a 1-0 lead.

The Red Sox added a run in the fourth on an RBI double by Chavis to make it 2-0.

The Red Sox pushed across three more in the fifth. A two run triple by Rafael Devers and an RBI single by Devon Fisher to score Devers game the Red Sox a commanding 5-0 lead.

The Rays took advantage of some wild pitching in the sixth to avoid being shut-out. Zacrey Law reached base after being hit by a pitch. Oscar Sanay followed with a single to left. A passed ball would score Law and Sanay would score on a wild pitcher to make it 5-2.

The Red Sox added an insurance run in the ninth. Alex McKeon singled home Chavis to hand the Rays a 6-2 defeat.

Jose Alvarado suffered the loss for the Rays.
