Bass matchup stats: Brian Bass has pitched 1/3 of an inning against the Rays, facing three batters as a member of the Twins bullpen. He gave up a hit to Nathan Haynes, who no longer is in the majors, and walked Eric Hinske intentionally. The only Rays hitter he retired was Evan Longoria, who he struck out.
