Spring Game 28 Thread: Reds at Rays

MLB Florida and Arizona Spring Training - SB Nation

And so we start the last weekend in Florida.  The Reds are 1-2 against the Rays this Spring and will be facing them both today and tomorrow.  Edinson Volquez takes the mound for the Redlegs.  As you probably know, he has yet to surrender a run during Grapefruit league play in 14 innings pitched.  Stupid WBC screwed up his chance at a shutout for Spring.

The Reds take on Jason Hammel for I believe the second time this Spring.  These two pitchers faced off on March 18th, and even though Volquez looked better than Hammel, the Rays got the win because Bill Bray surrendered 6 runs (1 earned) in the 5th inning and the Rays went on to win 7-3.  Here's hoping for a better outcome today.

See the lineups after the jump.
