JUPITER, Fla. (AP) -- Tampa Bay pitcher Wade Davis took a hard shot by Donnie Murphy off his right ankle in the second inning during the Rays' 3-2 win over the Miami Marlins on Tuesday.
On a day when football great Joe Namath sat in the Tampa Bay dugout as a guest of manager Joe Maddon, there was concern about Davis.
Murphy's two-out shot off Davis' ankle bounced into right field for a double and left the pitcher limping. After he was attended to by a trainer, Davis took some practice jogs on the infield and stayed in the game.
He allowed one run and three hits in five innings, struck out five and walked none.
Marlins starter Josh Johnson retired his first eight batters and gave up two runs and four hits in 4 2-3 innings with four strikeouts and one walk. He has a 2.33 ERA in four starts.
