Bottom 9 - Rays at Reds

Another of the Rays' highly respected young arms, Chris Mason, takes the mound for the final inning. Mason doesn't throw smoke like some of the other top pitchers in the system, but he's effective. Last year, Mason went 15-4 with a 2.57 ERA in Double A Montgomery.

Mason is rated only as the No. 10 prospect in the Rays system by Baseball America, but you have to think he'd be quite a bit higher in an organization without the quality and depth of the Rays. He worked himself into a bit of a jam by putting the first two runners on, but squeezed out of trouble and left runners on second and third when the final out was recorded on line out to right.

Rays win! Rays win! Rays win! Final score: 7-6. Thanks for joining the blog. Be sure to check back here tomorrow, when Roger Mooney will blog from the Rays' spring home opener against the Toronto Blue Jays.
