Evan Longoria and Luke Scott made their first Grapefruit League appearances in Sunday's 4-3 win over the Pirates.
Longoria, returning from a bruised right hand after he was hit by a pitch, went 0-for-1 with a walk and an RBI on a sacrifice fly. He reported that his hand felt good and the bat felt normal in his hands, although he was still struggling to get his timing back and was "a little rough" in the field. He was charged with a throwing error after badly missing first baseman Carlos Pena.
"Obviously I've got some adjustments to make. Today was kind of a struggle with myself," Longoria said. "The thing about playing Spring Training games is adjusting to the speed of the game again. Errors, obviously those are going to happen. But the adjustment to playing in a Major League game again and feeling that speed is what's needed. Those adjustments will be made. It's the first game, so I got my feet wet."
