The Rays started Saturday by allowing a walk-off grand slam to end a game. They ended Saturday with a whitewashing of the White Sox.
Cesar Ramos pitched in to the sixth inning, and combined with Brandon Gomes and Juan Carlos Oviedo to throw a five-hit shutout, blanking Chicago 4-0.
Tampa Bay jumped on White Sox started John Danks in the second inning, as James Loney singled with one out, moved to second on a wild pitch, and after a walk to Logan Forsythe and strikeout by Yunel Escobar, Hanigan doubled into the left-field corner, bringing in both runners.
The Rays extended the lead an inning later, as Wil Myers doubled off Danks with one out, and scored three batters later on a run-scoring single by James Loney.
Desmond Jennings made the lead 4-0 in the sixth, knocking a triple to centerfield, scoring Ben Zobrist.
Ramos (1-1) had a relatively easy first four innings, but got into a scary situation in the fifth, loading the bases with two out for Jose Abreu, who grounded out to strand all three runners.
Brandon Gomes threw three perfect innings of relief, and Juan Carlos Oviedo allowed a leadoff walk, but pitched a scoreless ninth inning to end the game.
Tampa Bay will look to make it two wins in a row Sunday afternoon in the third of this four-game series. David Price (3-1, 4.04 ERA) will get the start for the Rays, taking on Scott Carroll, who is making his big league debut. First pitch is scheduled for 2:10, with coverage on WDAE starting at noon with the Suncoast Hyundai Dealers Inside Pitch.
NOTES: Manager Joe Maddon was ejected from the game in the eighth inning protesting an Adam Eaton check-swing. The 65 pitches thrown by Ramos were the most since throwing 73 pitches in 4 1/3 innings as a member of the San Diego Padres October 4, 2009.
