CHICAGO (AP) -- It's another first for the Tampa Bay Rays. The Rays have advanced to the American League Championship Series for the first time in their 11-season history by downing the Chicago White Sox 6-2 in Game 4 of the ALDS at U.S. Cellular Field.
B.J. Upton put the Rays ahead to stay, belting a solo homer two
batters into the game before adding another solo blast in the third
inning. Cliff Floyd sparked a two-run fourth that put Tampa Bay
ahead 4-0, hitting an RBI double and scoring on Dioner Navarro's
Carlos Pena provided a pair of run-scoring singles to keep the
Rays in control of the game. Winning pitcher Andrew Sonnanstine held the White Sox to a pair of runs and three hits in five and two-thirds. He outpitched Gavin Floyd, who was rocked for four runs and five hits in three-plus innings. The Rays will face either Boston or the Los Angeles Angels in the ALCS.
