That's Mr. Pena to you

Carlos Pena's first at-bat of the spring looked an awful lot like a lot of his at-bats lasts season.

Batting in the top of the first, Pena sent a blast to the opposite field that hit the top of the wall and bounced back toward the infield.

Justin Ruggiano scored the first run of the game on the play.

Pena missed the first week of games while he rehabbed from his January surgery to repair two tears in his lower abdominal muscle.

He said he's in the best shape of his life because of all the exercises he's done to his core muscles.

He looked good on that swing.

The Rays lead 2-0 with the Pirates coming to bat in the bottom of the first.
