Rays beat Twins 7-2, Price sharp



The Rays beat the Twins 7-2 on a cold and at times wet afternoon in Port Charlotte.

Cy Young Award winner David Price was sharp in his second spring outing, striking out five and allowing only one hit over three innings, with 29 of his 41 pitches strikes.

Chris Gimenez hit a two-run homer, and Kelly Johnson had a two-run double to spark the offense as the Rays improved to 7-3.

Prospect OF Wil Myers showed some of his skill, muscling a ball through the wind to the base of the centerfield wall, then racing all the way to third for a triple.

The Rays face the Red Sox in Fort Myers on Monday, with Jeremy Hellickson starting.
