Extra bases

Delmon Young hit his 100th career home run in Friday night's loss; it was Young's second homer in as many nights. He got another start at DH on Saturday as he's currently swinging the bat the best among the team's DH candidates. Entering Saturday's action, he was hitting .269 with six extra-base hits and a .345 on-base percentage in 20 games with the Rays.

"I think he's probably feeling better now than he has all season," Rays manager Joe Maddon said. "I think he's very motivated right now. There's a lot to like about it. … I feel very fortunate he's here right now."

• Despite the three errors the Rays committed Friday night, they went into Saturday's action having committed just 59 errors on the season, ranking them second in the Major Leagues behind the Orioles. Friday night's game marked the first time this season the Rays committed more than two errors in a game. By contrast, the 2012 Rays committed three or more errors nine times.
