The Rays hosted the Phillies at Charlotte Sports Park on Friday afternoon for the first spring training game of the season.
The visiting team stole the game by a final score of 3 to 2.
We spoke to the Rays center fielder Kevin Kiermaier following the loss. He tells us he is not thrilled by his performance.
“It is definitely not how you draw it up the first play of the year,” he said in reference to misjudging a fly ball.
He vows to learn from the mistake.
