Game notes: Thursday night’s opener between the Rays and Tigers showcases two teams that can see a light at the end of the tunnel. For the Rays, that light hopefully leads to a spot in the MLB postseason, as they’re sitting in the final wild-card spot, ahead of four teams within three games entering Thursday. The Tigers, at 22 games under .500, are just looking to salvage any sort of pride in the last two months.

Even though the Tigers offense has been, well, less than stellar pretty much the entire season, “Hittin” Harold Castro collected three hits in Wednesday’s 4-1 loss to the Twins. Castro has reached base with a hit in 10 of his past 11 games, dating back to July 21.
