Rays Scott's homer backs Shields in victory

BRADENTON, Fla. -- While Saturday's contest between the Rays and Pirates at McKechnie Field was headlined by strong performances by one Opening Day starter and another potential one, Luke Scott wanted to make sure the game wasn't solely dominated by pitching.

Hitting out of the leadoff spot and serving as Tampa's DH, Scott led off the fifth inning with a long home run to right off potential Pirates Opening Day starter Jeff Karstens as Tampa beat Pittsburgh, 2-1. It was the only blemish on the right-hander's day.

Karstens became the first Pirates pitcher to go five innings this spring, allowing just the one run on three hits. He also walked three and struck out five in his second official Grapefruit League outing.
