The Rays improved their Grapefruit League record to 4-1 Tuesday afternoon, beating Houston 7-2 in six innings (rain).

Evan Longoria and David Price both made their spring training debuts. Longoria hit two singles in two plate appearances, with an RBI and a run scored.

Price pitched one inning, and didn’t allow a run on one hit and a walk. Fernando Rodney and Brandon Gomes also had a one scoreless inning each.

Prospect Alex Colome made an appearance in this ballgame, and didn’t have one of his sharper outings. He gave up a two-run homer in his one inning of work.

On the offensive side of things, Ryan Roberts and Leslie Anderson continued their hot starts to the spring. Roberts went 2-3 with a homer, 2 RBI and 3 runs scored. Anderson went 1-3, smacking a two-run triple.

Wil Myers continues to swing the bat well also, going 2-3 in this game.

    Andersen has really been stroking the ball well and looks like he can be useful offensively but did not look great in the field.Roberts has already proved he is valuable to the Rays on more than one level but Myers can mean a exciting future for the Rays and would love to see him this season in the MLB.
