Rays Spring Training March 12
Corey Brown continues to hit. The outfield hopeful had two singles in two trips to the plate in Thursday’s 10-3 win over the Blue Jays. He’s now hitting .538.
“He rakes,” Rays manager Kevin Cash said. “He’s hitting everything. Right, left, slider, change-up, fastball. It doesn’t matter.”
The Rays scored eight runs in the fifth inning. Of that inning, Cash noted: “That inning was fun to watch. We were due for one of those breakout innings. Seemed like everybody was squaring up balls. Any time you bat around you’re doing something right.”
Count Cash among those impressed by Steven Souza first home run of the spring, a towering shot onto the boardwalk in left.
“I know it’s impressive how hard he hit it and how far he hit it, but it was a first-pitch breaking ball,” Cash said. “You generally don’t see guys this time of the season adjusting to 0-0 curveballs. I’d say he adjusted pretty well.”
