Indians on the mound:
Fausto Carmona pitched three scoreless innings before surrendering a run in the fourth. The run proved significant since it ended a 28-inning scoreless streak by the Indians staff that dated back to the third inning of Wednesday's game against the Blue Jays.
Rays on the mound:
Fossum made his second start of the spring and held the Indians scoreless for 2 2/3 innings. The left-hander, who had shoulder surgery in September, left the game after walking Travis Hafner with two outs in the third. Fossum gave up three hits, walked two, hit a batter, and struck out one.
Grapefruit League records:
Indians 11-6; Rays 2-15.
