The best 1-2 relief combo at the moment may be Jose Alvarado and Diego Castillo of the Rays. Their combined numbers: 18.1 IP, 7 H, 7 BB, 23 SO, 1 R, 0 ER, 0.00 ERA. Kevin Cash will interchange them in the eighth or ninth depending on the matchups (Alvarado has four saves and Castillo picked up his second on Tuesday). Just another reason the lights-out Tampa staff continues to dominate.

Rays reliever Kolarek plays 1B in 3-0 win over Giants

Tampa Bay manager Kevin Cash kept getting the most from his pitching staff, moving reliever Adam Kolarek to first base in a piece of matchup strategy, and the Rays blanked the San Francisco Giants 3-0 Sunday.

David Schoenfield ESPN Senior Writer 

The Rays are going to win a lot of games if they keep pitching like this. Yonny Chirinos had his second straight strong start in Sunday's 3-0 win and the Rays have allowed just 19 runs through 10 games in their 7-3 start. Kevin Cash even invoked a fun strategy with pitcher Adam Kolarek moving to first base for a better and then returning to the mound. Meanwhile, Tommy Pham reached base for the 42nd straight games -- halfway to Ted Williams' 84-game streak in 1949.
