Rays Highlights: 3/25

You want highlights? We got 'yer highlights right here, pal.

Tommy Gilligan-USA TODAY Sports

Matt Andriese pitched pretty well today! He peppered in his sinker and was able to use all his pitches to utilize every inch of the strike zone. Pretty good...

Rene Rivera came back from injury with a bang, launching the second pitch he saw over the fence to give the Rays the lead. On Andriese, Rivera agreed that he was able to mix up his pitches with great effectiveness.

Rivera's solo homer put the Rays up 1-0 early on, and the home run was backed by Andriese's solid outing. All in all, he allowed 3 hits and 1 walk in 5 innings, piling up 6 strikeouts in total. His ERA for the spring is 1.10, and although it's pretty much meaningless it's still pretty great. The Twins would answer in the 6th with a Kenny Vargas solo home run to tie the game at 1-1. But in the 9th, a hustling Leonardo Reginatto beats out a ground ball to shortshop, allowing Joey Butler to score from third, putting the Rays up 2-1. This marks the 9th straight victory the Rays have over the Twins in Spring Training.
