Since the break, relievers have been All-Stars

ANAHEIM -- The Rays bullpen put forth another shut-down effort Saturday night, when Jake McGee, Joel Peralta and Fernando Rodney took care of the final eight outs of the Rays' 3-0 win over the Angels.

Entering Sunday's game against the Angels, the Rays bullpen ranked as the American League's best since the All-Star break.

In the last 26 2/3 innings, the bullpen has allowed only one run and struck out 41. Rays relievers have worked 48 innings since the All-Star break and have been scored upon in only four of those innings. Their 1.69 ERA since the break is the best in the American League.
