PORT CHARLOTTE, Fla. (AP) — Alex Cobb struck out 12 in seven innings Saturday and the Tampa Bay Rays and Baltimore Orioles played to a 3-3, 10-inning tie.
Delmon Young homered, singled and picked a catch off the top of the left field wall with the tying run on base in the eighth inning for the Orioles.
Young led off the second with the first spring home run against Cobb, who gave up six hits in his third start. Cobb struck out the side in the first inning and 67 of 88 pitches for strikes.
James Loney hit his second home run for the Rays in the first inning, driving in the only two runs off Baltimore starter Ubaldo Jiminez.
In his third spring start, Jiminez gave up five hits and a walk in six innings.
Michael Almanzar’s RBI single broke a 2-all tie in the fifth after a leadoff double by Alexi Casilla.
