PORT CHARLOTTE, Fla. (AP) - Ben Zobrist and Evan Longoria each hit a two-run homer in a four-run fifth inning that carried the Tampa Bay Rays past the Pittsburgh Pirates 6-2 on Monday night.

 

Zobrist's go-ahead shot appeared to be helped over the fence by right fielder Jose Tabata's outstretched glove. Longoria's first home run of the spring was a no-doubter.

 

Russell Martin had two hits for the Pirates, including an RBI double. Gaby Sanchez walked three times and scored a run.

 

Shelley Duncan, in the running to be a right-handed bat off the Tampa Bay bench, hit a solo home run and added a double. Rays starter Matt Moore labored through 4 2-3 wild innings, allowing only two earned runs but yielding six hits and five walks.
