Ramos sent down after four-inning outing
ST. PETERSBURG -- After pitching four scoreless innings with six strikeouts, Rays reliever Cesar Ramos was optioned back to Triple-A Durham.

Ramos was called up before Saturday's game, a 2-1 loss to the Mariners, to provide depth for the Tampa Bay bullpen, which had worked 6 2/3 innings in Friday night's 14-inning victory.

The six strikeouts and four innings were both career highs for Ramos as a reliever. At one point in the fourth and fifth innings, he struck out five consecutive batters.

The club did not immediately announce who would take Ramos' spot on the roster but Rays manager Joe Maddon said it would be a pitcher.
