Takeaways: Rays 6, Sox 3; Pedroia Pain-Free
Bob DeChiara-USA TODAY Sports

Takeaways from the Port, where the Sons of Torey Lovullo lost to the Tampa Bay Rays, 6-3, in a split-squad game in which Lovullo, John Farrell’s bench coach, had most of the regulars under his disposal. That, he expects, will mean some grief from Farrell, whose split-squadders in Dunedin emerged as 4-2 winners over the Toronto Blue Jays. * Second baseman Dustin Pedroia hit his first home run of the spring, jumping on a high 2-and-0 fastball from Rays right-hander Alex Cobb and hitting it over everything, including the boardwalk beyond the left-field fence. The home run came in the first inning and reminded Pedroia of how good it feels to swing pain-free, after dealing with a bad right thumb for the last four months of last season.
