Izzy works an inning

Jason Isrignhausen made his Rays debut, entering the game in the seventh inning.

Pirate leadoff hitter Andrew McCutchen promptly welcomed Izzy to Grapefruit League action with a triple over the head of Gabe Kapler in center field. McCutchen scored on a sac fly when Jose Tabata lined sharply to left field.

Izzy got Adam LaRoche to bounce out to first - 3-1 if you're scoring at home - and got Craig Monroe swinging to end the inning.

That's all for Izzy, who is trying to make it back to the major leagues after his 2008 season with the Cardinals was cut short by arm injuries.
