Bottom of the 1st

Newsflash - Carl Crawford can run, as he beats out a grounder to short for an infield hit. And this is a routine grounder short, one where 90 percent of the American League is thrown out by 15 feet.

Newsflash - Carl Crawford can still run, as he steals second, beating catcher David Ross' throw easily. He and Aki will make a nice 1-2 punch on top of the Rays' order.

Carlos Pena puts Crawford's hustle to use, ripping a single to right and giving the Rays a 1-0 lead.

Newsflash - Pena isn't Carl Crawford. He breaks for a second on a 3-2 pitch, which B.J. Upton swings through. Pena is nailed at second.

But Pena did enough damage with the bat, and the Rays are up 1-0.
