New Rays pitcher Jake Odorizzi started the game Friday for Tampa Bay. Two Blue Jays hitters took him yard during his two innings of work as Toronto beat the Rays 5-4.  Chris Archer came in to relieve Odorizzi and fared much better. Archer went three innings, gave up just one hit and struck out one. Centerfielder Desmond Jennings also had a good day as well as he went 1-for-1 with two walks, two runs,and two stolen bases. His two stolen bases gives him five on the year. Someone who has not had a good spring is Sean Rodriguez. Rodriguez went 0-for-2 with an RBI against Toronto, but it puts him 0-for-11 so far this spring.   The post Rays drop second straight with loss to Blue Jays appeared first on The Bay Cave.
