Rays Triple Play: Notes from camp

Published:

Big stick

1B Cameron Seitzer came over from minor-league camp and was added to the Rays travel roster, then sent the game into an extra inning with a leadoff home run in the ninth. Seitzer played at Double-A Montgomery last season, hitting .268 with six home runs, 61 RBIs and 81 walks.

Remember him?

Seth McClung, who began his career with the Devil Rays, was the winning pitcher in Lou Piniella’s first game as manager and was later traded to Milwaukee for Grant Balfour, pitched the 10th inning for the Pirates. He last pitched in the big leagues in 2009. At one point he was coaching high school girls basketball. He is in the Pirates’ minor-league camp trying to attempt a comeback.

Squeeze ’em in

Saturday’s game drew a crowd of 7,959 fans, the third-most at historic McKechnie Field.
