Making his first spring-training start of the year, Matt Moore threw 37 pitches and gave up two hits in 1 2-3 scoreless innings with two strikeouts and a walk. He escaped a bases-loaded jam in the first by retiring John Mayberry Jr. on an inning-ending groundout, then retired his first two batters in the second.

Tampa Bay second baseman Ben Zobrist was 0 for 2 in his first game since straining a back muscle during a workout on Feb. 19. He is not scheduled to play Tuesday.

The Rays’ Jeremy Moore hit a double and homer in the late innings.
