Gimme Moore!

Last night we were lucky enough to score some Tampa Bay Ray’s tickets for the Hancock Bank Club. Our friends over at Compass HRM were our dates to the grand event. Jonathan and Laura must have been good luck too, since the Rays won against the Boston Red Sox 5-3 last night.

If you can’t tell by the title, we are seriously crushing on Moore. Our infatuation grew after Matt yielded a double to Dustin Pedroia and a three-run homer to David Ortiz in the first inning. For Matt to walk two and strike out eight, all in only his second full season in the majors, we see big things in his future. We should mention that Matt Moore has tied Washington’s Jordan Zimmerman for the major league lead in victories, became the first Tampa Bay starter to begin a season 7-0 and tied a club record by winning his eighth straight decision dating to September.

“The first inning wasn’t as heartbreaking as you would think it would be just because of the way we’ve been swinging the bats,” Moore said.

“It’s one of those things where you have faith in our team and what our offense is going to do,” he added, “and as long as I put up zeroes and leave their lead at three, we’re going to make it interesting down the road.”

The whole Ray’s team deserves a high five for limiting the already struggling Red Sox to only one hit over the five innings. Close call after close call, the game was beyond gripping for a Tuesday night game – let alone a marque game. The stakes are always high against fierce competitors like the Red Sox. We were glad to be able to share the experience with valued clients like Compass HRM.
