Yesterday afternoon the Rays had pretty the most lopsided victory one can fathom in baseball. They scored 19 runs on 23 hits (both team spring training records), with five home runs being hit. The pitching held a perfect game through seven innings and eventually shutout the Minnesota Twins.

Some guy named Jake Bauers provided the big blows as he doubled and then later, ‘Light Tower Bauers’ clobbered a pitch over the right field concourse for a grand slam. Curt Casali, Rickie Weeks, Cade Gotta, and Nick Franklin also homered.
