Volquez struck out Longoria looking in his final inning of work with runners at 2nd and 3rd. Homer Bailey had a strong inning of work and Jerry Hairston hit a Grand Slam. Reds beat Rays 7 to 0.

i rememeber reading something about someone who found out that players who have a spring training slugging percentage 200 points higher than career levels are primed for breakout seasons.

Travis Ishikawa's career slugging % of .445 over 119 major league ABs. So far this spring he has a slugging % of 2.200, breakout season anyone?

He's currently the major league leader in HRs and one of his HRs was hit out of the stadium. :-L

* Brian Anderson (.638 against .353 career)
* Jorge Cantu (.739 against .450 career)

i dont know what stadium he plays at in ST, but most of the ST stadiums i've visited dont really have any OF seats, so pretty much every HR is out of the stadium...

Jonathan Sanchez looked good today. I'm a bit worried about him pitching in the WBC, but I'm still expecting good things from him this year.

3 IP, 3 hits, 1 ER, 0 BB, 4 Ks

one of the hits (which drove in the lone run) was on a routine fly ball that defensive whiz eugenio velez lost in the sun and would have ended the inning.
