Rays Rock Worley In 11-3 Win Against Twins

 

FORT MYERS, Fla. — Twins starter Vance Worley allowed 11 hits and seven earned runs in Minnesota’s 11-3 loss to the Tampa Bay Rays on Tuesday night.

Worley’s spring ERA rose to 13.50 and didn’t get through the third inning.

Among eight Twins out of minor-league options, Worley is battling fellow right-handers Sam Deduno and Kyle Gibson and left-hander Scott Diamond for the final rotation spot.

“First inning I wasn’t able to get the ball down in the zone, and they hit the ball pretty much everywhere,” Worley said. “Third inning, we thought we had everything on the right path, and everything unraveled again.”

Worley, acquired from Philadelphia two offseasons ago in a trade that cost the Twins starting outfielder Ben Revere, fell behind on the first pitch to nine of 19 batters.
