Rosario, Twins jump all over Rays 9-2
To start the rally, Max Kepler led off with a walk. Ehire Adrianza reached on a fielder’s choice, and Willians Astudillo notched a single to load the bases. Rosario then drove a 1-0 pitch into the seats for a grand slam, his second homer of spring training.

A few hitters later, outfielder Jake Cave homered to right field to score three runs, and Adrianza — in his second plate appearance of the first inning – brought home Kepler on an RBI double.
Catcher Jason Castro added the Twins’ final run on the afternoon via a solo shot in the fifth inning.
Minnesota is off Wednesday but returns to the field Thursday afternoon for split-squad scrimmages against Boston.
