Sure it's only spring, but Rays win!

Posted: Updated:
PORT CHARLOTTE (FOX 13) -

The Rays win their first game this Spring 6-3 over the Twins in Port Charlotte.  This was a perfect day weatherwise at the ballpark and Rays fans had to be thrilled to see Alex Cobb make his first start.  Grant Balfour was in fine form too - except for a couple pitches that hit the dirt.  But it's Spring and the intense closer can laugh it off now saying they would have been perfect shots in a game of cricket.  And, of course, there was Evan Longoria at the plate doing what Longo does - hitting the long ball! the 2-run shot put the Rays up 3-0.  Maybe it's the weather, the giddiness of spring, but this feels like the start of something bigger than just another baseball season...
