I missed most of the game. Ex-Astro Octavio Dotel pitched to one Rays batter (B J Upton) in the bottom of the 8th with the bases loaded. After starting 2-0, he threw three straight strikes to get out of the inning.
Closing for the Rays was ex-Astros Dan Wheeler. First batter he faced, Paul Konerko, hit a homerun. Wheeler gets the next three batters and the Rays take game 1 by a 6-4 score.
