Twins 6, Rays 2

Twins pound out 15 hits; Liriano shines again.

Francisco Liriano continues to impress in spring training action, as he struck out four over three innings without walking a batter or allowing a run.  Also on the mound Anthony Slama continued his strikeout binge, ringing up a pair in his inning of work.

At the plate, Ben Revere continues to see more time than anybody else and picked up another couple hits in five at-bats.  His start in left field seemed to confuse some, but it was a pretty straight-forward maneuver:  Gardy obviously wanted to give Michael Cuddyer some innings in center.  Cuddles even made a nice running catch in the first inning.

Jacque Jones continues to play like he means it and like he wants to make the team, running into Rays catcher Dioner Navarro and sending him to the hospital for x-rays in the process.  I haven't read anything on Navarro yet, but hopefully he's alright.
