The box score from last night between the Tampa Bay Rays and the Pittsburgh Pirates had no pitchers of record, no winner no loser.

The 2 hour and 49 minute affair before just under six thousand fans in Bradenton at LEMCO park ended in a 6-6 tie. Only in the spring practice games game do you see such an occurrence.

Tampa Bay’s SS Tristan Gray somewhat of the hero hitting a 3-Run HR off Pittsburgh Reliever Kyle Krick in the seventh and the comeback for the tie was on! The Gray bomb cut the lead to just one at 6-5 setting up the heroics of the Rays’ Jason Coats with a line drive, RBI single in the 8th to yes… tie the score at 6-6.
