Scott Kazmir pitched 5 innings, struck out 5 and looked like the Kaz of old. The bullpen handled the rest, shutting down the Marlins for the next 5 innings. In the bottom of the 10th, Jason Bartlett singled, stole second, took third on a wild pitch and then scored the winning run on a line-drive sac fly to center field. Willy Aybar drove home the winning run and the Rays won the Citrus Series for the year. They have one more game against the Marlins, tomorrow at 1 PM.
Chad Bradford also made his first appearance of the year for the Rays in relief. With Bradford and Kazmir returning, Andy Sonnanstine was the odd man out, he was optioned to AAA Durham. Winston Abreu was also designated for assignment.
