Rays P Alex Colome pitches 5 scoreless innings


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com

Colome had a solid day on the mound, striking out three batters and walking one. He gave up four hits. This was a much better outing than Colome's previous two games, which saw him give up 11 combined earned runs.

Colome now has a 4.81 ERA for the season.

"Like a two-ball, one-strike [count], and I have to come in the middle and they got the chance to swing the bat," Colome said about being behind the hitter in his last start. "But tonight I'm attacking the zone. Throwing strikes, making my pitches. Nothing today any different. The only thing I did was be a little more aggressive, and more attacking the zone."

Colome's next start is projected for May 26 against the Mariners.

Smyly threw a bullpen session Sunday and is scheduled to face hitters in a batting-practice session Wednesday. After following that with another batting-practice session, he could progress to minor-league games and would need to get stretched out and ready for the regular season.

"Depending on need," Cash said. "If he got up to 75 pitches, does that help us? Or do we want to build him up to 105? We'd have to talk to him about that."
