BRADENTON, Fla. (AP) – Wandy Rodriguez had a solid spring training debut while facing major league batters for the first time in nearly nine months, and the Pittsburgh Pirates and Tampa Bay Rays played to a 2-all tie in 10 innings.
Rodriguez worked one inning for the Pirates, did not allow a hit and struck out two. It was a good first step back for the left-hander, who missed most of last season due to persistent forearm pain.
Rays left-hander David Price tossed 1 2-3 innings and allowed one run on one hit.
The Pirates made three errors, including a booted grounder by shortstop Robert Andino that led to an unearned run. Clint Barmes had an RBI double and Russell Martin hit a solo home run.
