Hit Show

Back-to-back doubles by Carlos Pena and Pat Burrell in the top of the first inning give the Rays a 2-0 lead.

Carl Crawford, who had singled and stole second, scored on Pena's double down the right field line. Pena came home on Burrell's two-bagger.

The Rays might have added more runs but Even Longoria's smash was caught by a leaping Jeff Keppinger at shortstop and turned into a double play when Jason Bartlett was caught off second. Bartlett reached when he was hit by a pitch.

Not a bad first inning for the meat of the Rays order. Longo, Pena and Burrell produced two doubles, two RBIs and scored a run.

The Rays lead 2-0 after one.
