Spring training breakdown: Rays 6, Pirates 3
Rays starter: RHP Jake Odorizzi
Pirates starter: RHP Edinson Volquez
Frozen ropes: Pirates second baseman Michael Martinez was the only player to post a multi-hit game.
Dealing: The Rays have an enviable collection of young pitching. Jake Odorizzi allowed just one run over 32⁄3 innings.
Ouch: Rays prized young slugger Wil Myers had to the leave the game in the third inning after fouling a Volquez pitch off his foot.
Stock up: Every outing counts for Pirate relief pitchers in a crowded bullpen. Vin Mazzaro had a strong outing Saturday, striking out the side in the fifth and throwing two perfect innings of relief.
Stock down: Jared Hughes allowed two runs in two innings. Hughes has a 5.14 ERA this spring.
