ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) - The Tampa Bay Rays became the first
team in six years to have 100 homers and 100 steals by the All-Star
break when B.J. Upton homered in the third of inning of Sunday's game against Florida.
Upton's solo homer on the first pitch in the bottom of the third off Andrew Miller was the Rays' 100th this season. Tampa Bay started Sunday with 116 stolen bases.
The Rays became the fifth team to do it since 1954 according to Stats LLC, joining the Marlins (2003), the Blue Jays (1998), the Indians (1994), and the Reds (1977).
