UNDATED: this season.
Devil Rays 4, Rangers 3, 10 innings
KISSIMMEE, Fla. (AP) - The Devil Rays got everything they needed for a successful debut at Disney World.
Brendan Harris' bases-loaded single in the 10th inning, his fourth hit of the game, drove in the winning run off Scott Feldman (1-2), who was recalled from Triple-A Oklahoma earlier in the day.
Brian Stokes (2-5) pitched the 10th for the Devil Rays, who then loaded the bases with no outs in the bottom of the inning on two walks and Delmon Young's single.
Hank Blalock homered for the third straight game for the Rangers.
Despite slow advance ticket sales, most of the seats in the minor league park at Disney's Wide World of Sports complex were filled. Attendance was announced as 8,443, a little more than 1,000 below capacity and slightly better than the 8,241 the Devil Rays and Rangers averaged for six dates at Tropicana Field last season.
The Devil Rays shifted the three-game series from St. Petersburg to Disney - about 90 miles northeast of the team's domed stadium - in hopes of raising the franchise's profile in the Orlando area and bolstering television ratings across Central Florida.
Disney's 9,500-seat park is the smallest to host major league games since the Oakland Athletics opened the 1996 season with six ``home'' games against Toronto and Detroit at 9,000-seat Cashman Field in Las Vegas.
