ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) – Isaac Paredes went home twice ahead of his former teammates to double the biggest tournament total of his career, helping the Tampa Bay Rays beat the Detroit Tigers 6-1 in one afternoon which Eduardo Rodriguez left the field in the first half and headed to the injured list.
Rodriguez only lasted once and averaged 91.9 mph for his fast ball, 2.4 mph below his season average, and left the mound with Tigers top sports coach Doug Teter.
Drew Rasmussen allowed four hits in five innings with seven strikes and no walk, improving to 4-0 with a 1.01 ERA in his last five starts.
The Rays travel to Baltimore to begin a three-game series with the Orioles.
