The Tampa Bay Rays overcame a 2-0 deficit series deficit in the ALDS, and tied it against the Houston Astros in order to force a pivotal Game 5. Thursday night didn't go the way that the Rays had envisioned, as they fell 6-1 to Houston, and thus were eliminated from the postseason.

Pitcher Tyler Glasnow didn't have the greatest night, and he believes it was due to his "pretty obvious" tipped pitches.

During the game, retired MLB player Kevin Frandsen and free agent Trevor Plouffe took to Twitter to point out that Glasnow was tipping his pitches. After looking at the film after the game, the right-hander noticed that that was indeed the case.

Glasnow lasted just 2.2 innings on Thursday night, as he surrendered four runs on five hits, coming on RBI doubles from Jose Altuve and Yuli Gurriel, and a two-RBI double by Alex Bregman.

This was Tyler Glasnow's first taste of playoff action, and this can be classified as a learning moment for the 26-year-old. Expect the young pitcher to make adjustments this offseason in order to prevent events like this from happening in the future.
