Kazmir looks good in Rays' victory

DEVIL RAYS (ss) 5, PHILLIES (ss) 4
at Clearwater, Fla.
Sunday, March 18

Devil Rays at the plate: After the Phillies tied the game in the eighth, B.J. Upton delivered an RBI triple, scoring Ben Zobrist with the winning run in the top of the ninth. In a four-run seventh inning, Zobrist notched an RBI single and pinch-hitter Josh Arhart singled in two runs.

Phillies at the plate: Held to just two hits through the first six innings, the Phillies broke through in the seventh, when Aaron Rowand led off with a single and scored on Ryan Howard's double. Pat Burrell followed with a two-run homer to left, breaking a 1-for-19 skid. Jimmy Rollins stroked two hits and stole his fourth base of the spring.

Devil Rays on the mound: Scott Kazmir, the Rays' No. 1 starter, cruised through the first five innings, then surrendered three runs in the sixth on three hits -- including Burrell's homer.

Phillies on the mound: Myers, one of two possibilities to start on Opening Day, went six-plus innings, allowing one unearned run on two hits and one walk, while striking out seven. Myers started the seventh and left after Jorge Cantu reached on an error. Antonio Alfonseca allowed three earned runs on three combined hits and walks.

Grapefruit League records: Devil Rays 3-15; Phillies 7-10-1.

Up next: In his fourth appearance of the spring, and third Grapefruit League outing, righty Adam Eaton will face the Pirates on Monday at 1:05 p.m. ET in Clearwater, Fla. Eaton is scheduled to face Bucs lefty Ian Snell, a Delaware native. Monday's game marks the second of three meetings between the Pennsylvania clubs. Philadelphia won, 11-10, on March 6.

The Devil Rays are off on Monday, and Gary Glover is scheduled to pitch against the Indians on Tuesday at 1:05 p.m. at Progress Energy Park in St. Petersburg.
