Starling Marte homered [video] in his first AB for his 2nd long ball of the spring. It also extended his hit streak to 8 straight AB. He did, however actually record an out later on in the game to finish 1 for 2.
James McDonald started for the Bucs and gave up 1 ER over 3 innings. He gave up 2 hits and struck out a batter. Daniel Moskos added 2 scoreless innings of relief. Bryan Morris and Michael Crotta also each added a scoreless frame.
