Rocco Baldelli's first major-league game since May 15, 2007, appeared to go well Sunday, as he went 1-for-4, driving in a run with a third inning single, and made a semi-sprawling catch in rightfield before
leaving the game in the middle of the sixth inning.
"I came out of it feeling good,'' Baldelli said. "I'm just really, really happy right now.''
Baldelli grounded back to the pitcher after getting a smattering of applause from the Safeco Field crowd and some cheering from the Rays dugout, lined a single to left, struck out and grounded out to third.
