MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - Chris Archer pitched four scoreless innings and 21-year-old prospect Justin O'Conner hit three doubles in the Tampa Bay Rays' 6-5 loss to their Double-A Montgomery affiliate Saturday.
Archer completed a strong spring with six strikeouts and no walks in the Rays' final tuneup before Monday's season opener against Toronto.
Luke Maile scored on Richie Schaffer's sacrifice fly in the eighth to give the Biscuits the go-ahead run. All the runs came off relievers from Montgomery's roster after the Rays built a 5-0 lead.
The Biscuits scored four times in the sixth, including Jeff Malm's two-run homer. They tied the game with Taylor Motter's solo shot in the seventh.
The Rays scored twice in the fifth on a bases-loaded walk and Evan Longoria's RBI single.
O'Conner, who turns 22 on Monday, scored twice and threw out a pair of runners trying to steal second.
