Pitcher Andy Sonnanstine was pressed into double duty and responded after a lineup mixup cost the Rays their DH. Sonnanstine allowed five earned runs in working through 5 2/3 innings, but most of them came via two Ben Francisco homers. At the plate, Sonnanstine doubled in a run in Tampa Bay's five-run fifth inning.
