    ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- If Tampa Bay Rays pitcher Chris Archer needs some kind of spark to get out of the long, difficult slump that has been his 2016 season, perhaps the Minnesota Twins will do the trick.Archer is 5-15, leading the majors in losses, with just one win in his last 10 starts and his team 2-8 in those games. Baseball hasnt had a 20-game loser since Detroits Mike Maroth in 2003, and if Archer is to keep pitching and avoid such infamy, something has to change.For his career, Minnesota has been that kind of cure-all -- hes 4-1 all-time against the Twins, with a sterling 1.78 ERA in his five starts. He actually lost in his last outing against Minnesota, but struck out 12 in doing so nearly a year ago in August.And if the Rays, too, are to reverse their struggles, theyll need Archer to last longer than Fridays starter, Blake Snell, who got to 97 pitches in just 5 1/3 innings, putting a 2-1 lead in the hands of the Tampa Bay bullpen.It didnt go well, as relievers Erasmo Ramirez and Ryan Garton combined to give up five runs and six hits in their 3 2/3 innings, while the Twins bullpen calmly threw 2.2 innings of one-hit, scoreless relief.(Ramirez) has been throwing the ball pretty good for us, Rays manager Kevin Cash said. Today, you go back and look at those pitches and Im guessing they were probably hit where they were supposed to be hit, (given) the location.Those pitches included a two-run home run to Eddie Rosario and a solo shot from Miguel Sano. And just as the Twins have been good for Archer in the past, the Rays could benefit from facing a young, unproven arm in Minnesota starter Jose Berrios, who is carrying an 8.57 ERA with a 2-1 record.Berrios had good numbers at Triple-A Rochester, carrying a 2.71 ERA in 13 starts, and Saturday will be his second start since being recalled. He took the win in his last start, giving up three runs on five hits in six innings for a quality start, retiring 15 straight at one point.Minnesota kept the Rays from causing any real trouble in Fridays opening win, holding them to a 1-for-7 night with runners in scoring position. Starter Ervin Santana gave up three hits in the first five at-bats, then settled down to retired 10 straight and last into the seventh inning. Their bats, meanwhile, came through with four hits with runners in scoring position, allowing them to break open a game that was a pitchers duel entering the seventh inning.A nice overall win for us, manager Paul Molitor said. We had to keep fighting. We fought our way back in the game and the bullpen was solid. Jordan 11 Concord 2018 .

This should be celebrated because it will not always be this way. With the amount of money given to players by their clubs these days, it is a wonder that so many of those teams allow the sport to continue to take away many of their assets so they can play for a different team in the middle of their season.
