The Rays clinched their first winning season on Friday night with a 14-3 victory over the Orioles at home in Tampa Bay, according to Associated Press. "Going into spring training I knew we were better," Rays manager Joe Maddon said. "We just didn't know how much better. Eighty-two wins is a big moment, and I want this to be the standard of what we do, to get that number on an annual basis." It took the Rays eleven Major League seasons to record a winning record, only the Seattle Mariners (fifteen seasons) took longer. "You've got to break through the barrier eventually. We've done it, now let's move on down the road," Maddon added.
