Dave Nike Sock Dart SP mentioned this tidbit yesterday, but I figured I'd expand on it.

The first game of spring training usually serves as a dre s rehearsal. The starters those people who are not partaking in the World Baseball Cla sic or injured wave towards the home crowd, play an inning or two in the field just of sufficient length to get a plate appearance then stop hunting. This leads to lineups that resemble the teams Triple-A squad. Naturally, this leads to some rather lopsided Nike Free 5.0 V3 match-ups when the other team has a legitimate starting pitcher around the mound.

But what about three in a single game?

Thats what Dusty Baker threw the American League champions yesterday. The Rays christening of the new spring home didnt quite visit plan. Joe Maddon followed the aforementioned tradition, running out such wunderkinds as Jon Weber, Ray Olmedo, Chris Richard, and Elliot Johnson. Heck, the Rays even started former Houston Astros starter Carlos Hernandez. So imagine the results when the Cincinnati Reds started Edinson Volquez, brought Nike Free 5.0 2015 Jonny Cueto in to relieve Volquez, then handed the game to Homer Bailey.

Unsurprisingly, the trio would plow through a ragtag lineup, totaling seven innings of two-hit ball while walking two and striking eight out. Aaron Fultz and Jared Burton would close the game out, holding the Rays to four hits, six baserunners, and 0 runs.

At least something went well for the Rays Nike Air Max 90 as Carl Crawford, the longtime face of the franchise, recorded the first hit in Charlotte Sports Park.
