• Tampa Bay is in Baltimore the day of the Preakness Stakes on Saturday for the fourth time in club history and the first since 2003. Entering Saturday's contest, the Rays held a 2-1 advantage against the Orioles on the day of the big horse race. The Rays won in 1998 and '03 when Real Quiet and Funny Cide won, respectively, and they lost when War Emblem won in '02.
• According to the Elias Sports Bureau, Friday night's 12-10 Rays win was the first game in the Major Leagues this season when each team scored 10 or more runs. It was the first 12-10 win in Rays history.
• Former Rays shortstop Reid Brignac went from the Rockies to the Yankees for cash on Saturday. Maddon said he was happy for Brignac, and he added that he thought he would be able to handle New York since he's familiar with playing in the American League East from his days with the Rays.
• Peralta retired the side in order in the ninth inning of Friday night's Rays win over the Orioles. He did so by facing the 3-4-5 hitters in the Orioles' lineup. In his Rays career (2011-13), he has faced the opponents' 3-4-5 batters more than any other spots in the order, and he has held them to a .189 average.
