So true. Ramirez started the game against the Twins today, Del Rosario followed in the third and fourth, and Keppinger played in todays game. The extended spring training games have the same feel to them as the College mid-week non-coference games. Well officiated and laid back. Ruzic the older of the big Aussies, went two solid innings and I'd guess is about done with spring training. Rice went a couple of good innings making a nice tag at home for an out on a wild pitch. Medina closed out the ninth, giving up one and preserving the 5-4 win.
