Devil Rays update

Tampa Bay ended a winless six-game road trip with a loss to the Toronto Blue Jays yesterday. The Devil Rays have dropped seven in a row, matching their longest losing streak of the season. They are a major league-worst 18-42 since the All-Star break and have been particularly dreadful on the road. Tampa Bay, which would need to go 6-7 the rest of the way to avoid a 100-loss season, has dropped 19 of its past 20 games away from Tropicana Field. Cemented in last place, Tampa Bay is giving its top prospects an opportunity to play. Third baseman B.J. Upton, the second overall pick in the 2002 draft, has struggled, hitting .239 with no homers and six RBIs and committing 12 errors. Outfielder Delmon Young, the No. 1 overall pick in the 2003 draft, has not disappointed, batting .400 in 18 games with three home runs and 10 RBIs.
