For a day, Drew Smyly had little to smile about.
Smyly gave up five earned runs in six innings of work Friday as the Tampa Bay Rays lost 6-2 to the Minnesota Twins. Minnesota’s Ervin Santana worked six innings and gave up only three hits, walking one.
For Tampa Bay, outfielder Brandon Guyer had two hits, one of them a home run, to bolster his argument to make the team. Guyer is hitting .500 with five home runs.
Minnesota’s Trevor Plouffe and Kurt Suzuki each hit two home runs for the Twins.
Right-hander Jake Ordizzi will make his fourth spring start for Tampa Bay in Bradenton against Pittsburgh in a 6:05 p.m. game Saturday. He has a 1.59 ERA with six strikeouts in 5 2/3 innings this spring.
