Rays J.V. Tough
Maddon always likes to talk about the junior varsity determining who wins Spring Training games. Well, Saturday the Rays’ J.V. was sick in their 15-7 dismantling of the Red Sox.
Leading the way were Jon Weber with six RBIs on the day, via a three-run double and a three-run homer, while Ray Sadler added a two-run homer that was hit so hard and far it could still be traveling.
Incidentally, Spring Training records are hard to come by, but according to the Rays, Weber’s six RBIs broke the team record of five shared by Jose Canseco, Jonny Gomes, and Randy Winn.
