Gameday live: Rays vs. Marlins



UPDATE: Willy Aybar's 9th-inning homer makes it 8-5, and Fernando Perez singled with two outs, but that's how it ends with Marlins winning.

UPDATE, 3:52: Home run by Scott Cousins makes it 8-4 Marlins and the nine-game winning streak looks to be history.

UPDATE, 3:49: Rodriguez takes a few good cuts but pops out. It's 7-4 Marlins going to the ninth.

UPDATE, 3:47: Rays have the bases loaded with two outs in the eighth and Sean Rodriguez at the plate.

UPDATE, 3:25: The Rays cut the lead to 7-4. Upton said hitting the ball to right and right-center is a good sign and a big key for him.

UPDATE, 2:57: A couple of windblown balls and bases-loaded double by Hanley Ramirez led to a four-run Marlins rally and a 7-3 lead.

UPDATE, 2:45: Upton goes deep to right for his second homer of the day, ties game 3-3 in the sixth.

UPDATE, 2:24: Garza finishes his five innings with three hits, four strikeouts, one walk.

UPDATE, 2:22: Brett Carroll lofted a ball into the wind that carried out to right to put the Marlins up 2-1.

UPDATE, 2:20: Matt Garza is the first Rays pitcher to work into the fifth this spring.

 UDPATE, 2:16: Long homer to right-center by B.J. Upton off Ricky Nolasco ties it 1-1. And Chris Coghlan just makes a running, diving catch to rob Hank Blalock of a hit.

UPDATE, 2:11:
 Marlins lead 1-0 mid-fourth, but Garza has been sharp allowing only two hits.

UPDATE, 1:47: Rays get three singles in the second, by Zobrist, Upton and Shoppach but no runs as Bartlett makes third out.

UPDATE, 1:31: Garza gives up a run in the second, allowing a double, then a two-out walk and a single to Ronny Paulino.

UPDATE, 1:13: Matt Garza had a quick 1-2-3 first inning.
