Robbie Ray joins #PitchersWhoRake contingent, blasts homer off Chris Archer

Robbie Ray, starting pitcher for the D-backs, had only six hits (and zero homers) in 51 at-bats entering Monday's game against the Rays.

Ray, unfortunately, gave up four more runs than he scored while on the mound. Still, it gives even more credence to the fact that the NL West contains the most powerful hitting pitchers in all the land.
