Right fielder Brandon Guyer moved to center to replace Kiermaier, and Corey Dickerson entered the game to take Guyer's spot. Shortstop Tim Beckham replaced Forysthe at second base and Brad Miller entered the game to play shortstop. Kiermaier had entered the series hoping to pick things up offensively as he left the game hitless in his last 20 plate appearances.
"I'm OK, I ran into Logan pretty good there," Kiermaier said after the game. "But overall I think it could have been a lot worse. I feel all right."
Kiermaier factored heavily into the Rays' promotional plans for this weekend's series with the White Sox, with Saturday designated Kiermaier Bobblehead Night and Sunday Kiermaier Glove Day.
