Ray, Lamb lead D-backs past Giants

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. — Robbie Ray allowed one run in 3 1/3 innings and Jake Lamb continued his torrid spring as the D-backs cruised to a 5-1 win over the Giants on Saturday in front of a Salt River Fields record crowd of 13,557.

Ray, a near lock to start the season in the D-backs rotation, has allowed only one run in seven spring innings.

“I felt like the ball was coming out pretty good,” Ray told MLB.com. “I mixed in some good offspeed. Overall, I felt like it was good.”

Lamb, meanwhile, went 1 for 2 with a first-inning RBI triple to lift his average at .526. The third baseman has at least one hit in each of the seven games he’s played and carries a 1.624 OPS.
