The Rays lost their first game in Spring Training today against the Astros. It isn't hard to look and find where the Rays lost the game. It came when they brought in D'oh Mann in the 6th inning. He blew a 3-2 lead by giving up 4 runs on 4 hits and a walk in 1 inning pitched. Munter was brought in the next inning and didn't help things either, by allowing 2 runs on 2 hits and a walk in 1 inning pitched.
Hammel started the game for the Rays and managed to give up 2 runs in 3 innings pitched. One of the runs was unearned however, as Navarro had a throwing error trying to pick off a baserunner.
Offensively, the Rays got most of their production from B.J. Upton. The "Real" Beej was 2-3 with 2 doubles, 2 RBI, and a run. He was also involved in the strangest play of Spring Training so far. Other notables were Zobrist who went 2-4 with a walk, and Evan Longoria walked in his only at-bat.
