PORT CHARLOTTE, Fla. -- The Rays recorded 20 hits Tuesday night in their 11-3 win over the Twins at Hammond Stadium in Fort Myers, Fla.

The 20 hits were a spring record in the "Rays" era (since 2008), breaking the previous mark of 19 (March 31, 2010, in a 10-3 win over the Twins).

Fourteen different players recorded hits during the 3-hour, 34-minute contest. Of note: the Rays haven't recorded 20 hits in a regular-season game since Sept. 5, 2007, against the Orioles, when they collected 22 hits.
