A Tampa Bay Rays‘ starting pitcher has finally given up runs this spring.
Jake Odorizzi gave up a grand slam Sunday in the bottom of the first inning to Byung Ho Park of Minnesota. The runs, however, were unearned after shortstop Tim Beckham made a two-out throwing error. Odorizzi gave up three walks and had three errors behind him in the four-run inning.
Closer Brad Boxberger threw a scoreless inning. Blake Snell threw two for the Rays.
The Rays scored three times in the ninth to close to within one.
The Rays will start Matt Moore Monday against the Red Sox in Fort Myers, who closed last season out well
