Rays have the right answer again

Tampa Bay rallies in the ninth to top Cleveland 6-5 and tie the club record with its sixth straight win.
Devil Rays/baseball

Numerous deals mean rotation is revamped
ST. PETERSBURG -- They entered the clubhouse Tuesday with a definite purpose in mind -- like finding their lockers.

Castilla back on DL; Huff gets opportunity
ST. PETERSBURG -- The most wretched season of Vinny Castilla's career took another turn for the worse Tuesday.

Rain delays Saunders a day
AUGUSTA, Ga. -- Tony Saunders has overcome tremendous physical and mental barriers to get to this point in his remarkable comeback.

'El Duque' tosses 4 shutout innings in Tampa
TAMPA -- New York Yankees right-hander Orlando Hernandez pitched four shutout innings in a rehabilitation start for Class A Tampa on Tuesday.

Gary Shelton
Trades best Rays could do
ST. PETERSBURG -- Program. What I need is a program.

Bucs/NFL
Bright future in the shadow of the draft
Bucs lineman Anthony McFarland isn't concerned about comparisons with Rookie of the Year Jevon Kearse.

Sapp critiques Miami critics
TAMPA -- Bad vibes from last weekend's joint practice session between the Bucs and Dolphins reverberated all the way from Miami on Tuesday.

Sapp's high-energy antics rile Dolphins
Bucs tackle waves off criticism from rookie after last week's joint practice went sour.

Offense showing improvement near goal line
TAMPA -- Things have looked ugly for the offense this training camp, and all along coaches and players have said it was because they were installing a new offense.

Camp survivor
In the spirit of CBS' Survivor series, the Times is asking Bucs players and coaches whom they would throw off the island, er, out of camp, and why. Here's today's episode:

Around the AFC

Around the NFC

Storm
Old friends reunite to save Storm's season
Bowden, Kaleo connect through the air after both were dumped by the New England Seawolves.

Mutiny
Bucuane likely to get his first start in Diallo's absence
Forward from Mozambique must fill the role of scorer to help the Mutiny today.

Motorsports
New rules aim to keep throttles from sticking
Though it has not concluded that stuck accelerators caused two recent fatal wrecks at New Hampshire International Speedway, NASCAR is addressing the possibility.

Outdoors
Captain's corner
The threadfin spawn has reached the beaches. Large schools of baby threadfins can be found by looking for birds dipping low over the water. The bait schools often look like a patch of light brown water drifting with the current. These baits are only one-quarter-inch long. Using small jigs or flies in light-colored patterns will fool most gamefish that stalk these tiny baits.

FSL
1997 probably last title season in St. Petersburg
Compared with the storied history of minor-league baseball in St. Petersburg, the St. Petersburg Devil Rays were merely a blip on the radar screen. The Rays took over the Cardinals' affiliate in the Florida State League in 1997, and after four years will leave the city as minor-league baseball realigns its leagues.

Et cetera
Sampras back, Agassi out in Toronto

Pete Sampras shook off the rust. Andre Agassi couldn't.

Preps
Rain halts title game rematch
If it seems tough to find a baseball team in the bay area that will do anything to win and absolutely hates to lose, look no further than the State Championships for the junior division being played at Dunedin's Englebert Field.

Team wins 2nd softball title
For the second time in three years, the same group of girls has won a softball championship for the Tampa Bay Little League. Tampa Bay's major division (11- and 12-year-olds) defeated host Jensen Beach 8-0 Tuesday night to claim the state crown, just two years after winning the 9- and 10-year-old title.

Talented team, rookie coach, humbling loss
It began harmlessly.
