Kazmir not sharp, Gomes hot
LHP Scott Kazmir returned to the mound for the Devil Rays on Saturday after missing the final six weeks of last season, and he got plenty of work. Kazmir threw 41 pitches to eight batters over 1 1/3 innings, allowing three runs on two hits and walking two. What the Rays were most concerned about was that he had no discomfort, and he did not appear to.
Jonny Gomes, meanwhile, hit homers in his first two at-bats.
