Percy perfect no more

Proving that he's not perfect, Troy Percival finally allowed a base runner this spring. And that runner was Melky Cabrera, who took his base after getting plunked in the foot by Percival in the top of the sixth inning.

Percy had retired 10 in a row this spring after he got Brett Garnder to ground to second to start the inning.

Melky was the next batter.

Percy did retire the final two Yankees, so he still has his spring training-long no-hitter going, which is nice.

The Rays lead 3-0 on an RBI single by Pat Burrell in the third and a pair of bases-loaded walks in the fourth.

David Price went four innings. He allowed three hits and struck out four.
