ST. PETERSBURG — The Rays’ unrelenting lineup and top-notch defense led them to another record-setting victory Monday night at Tropicana Field.

After erasing a two-run deficit in the first inning, the Rays fell behind again in the third, then immediately delivered a four-run counterpunch that sent them on their way to an 8-3 win over the Astros. Tampa Bay has won each of its first 14 home games to begin the year, the longest season-opening streak in the AL/NL’s modern era.

The Rays (20-3) are also just the seventh team in the modern era to win at least 20 of their first 23 games.

The Rays have outscored their opponents, 102-34, when playing under their home dome this season. Their 14-game streak is tied with the 1885 Chicago White Stockings for the longest such run in AL/NL history. The longest streak belongs to the 1880 White Stockings, at 21 games.
