With their season-opening losing streak at five games after Wednesday's 5-1 loss to the Angels and their offensive ineptitude reaching historical proportions, the Rays are starting to get a bit frustrated.

"I think a lot of us have gotten to the point where we're like, 'All right, when is it going to stop,'" outfielder B.J. Upton said.

The Rays are hitting a major-league-low .136 as a team, have scored just one run in four of the games (and three in the other) and have yet to hold a lead.

Naturally, it's a been a group effort, with Manny Ramirez and Dan Johnson at 1-for-17, Matt Joyce and Johnny Damon 1-for-13 and Ben Zobrist 3-for-15.

"This is an abnormally low end of hitting," manager Joe Maddon said. "It's a little bit more difficult. You'll see moments like this, but not this many games in a row with just one (run) and a couple knocks."

Maddon also tried to take some pressure off Ramirez, who was booed by the home crowd Tuesday after another poor night. Ramirez began the game on the bench before flying out as a pinch hitter. He will miss the series opener against the White Sox in Chicago on Thursday because of a personal matter, Maddon said.
