Extra Bases

• Jeff Keppinger struck out looking twice for the first time in his career Saturday night. He has struck out only four times this season, all looking.

• Sean Rodriguez, who has a 10-game hitting streak, was not in the lineup Sunday due to soreness on the left side of his chest. The Rays infielder said he irritated the area in Saturday night's game while diving to his left for a ground ball.

• Jeremy Hellickson made his 40th career start Friday night and received a no-decision. The second-year right-hander has used his 40 starts to shape a 19-10 record and a 2.86 ERA. According to Stats Inc., that is the lowest ERA of any active starting pitcher through his first 40 starts.
