|by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer|
|(3/25/15) Competing for a spot in the Rays' starting rotation, Matt Andriese threw 75 pitches over five innings Wednesday against the Twins, allowing no earned runs, three hits, six strikeouts and one walk.
Andriese retired his first six batters before allowing a double to Twins third basemen Eduardo Nunez.
"I thought I commanded the strike zone with the sinker today," Andriese said. "Just throwing all of my pitches for strikes. The cutter was good on both sides of the plate and the sinker as well."
Andriese's numbers for the spring include a 1.10 ERA, 10 strikeouts and six walks in 16 1/3 innings.
