Joyce shares laugh with Rays after injury
NEW YORK -- A day after hitting a tiebreaking three-run homer and rolling his left ankle simultaneously in the Rays' 4-1 win over the Yankees, Matt Joyce still could feel the injury.

"I was sore this morning," Joyce said. "I woke up and had it wrapped pretty tight, put ice on it and kept it elevated. But it's going to be sore after you roll it like that. Hopefully, I'll be ready to go."

Joyce, who did not start Thursday night's rubber match, said he was available to pinch-hit.

Joyce smiled when asked about the best message he received in the aftermath of his home run/injury.

"I got a lot of comments on my debacle," Joyce said. "Really, I thought the best was [David] Price, who said I needed to work on my landing. I forget exactly what he said on Twitter, [something like] I've got to work on my dismount. I got a 3 for the landing. I don't know how I got a 3 for that one."
