Feeling the moment

It didn't take Tampa Bay coach Barry Melrose to slip into his ESPN experience Wednesday night during a radio show at the team's training camp hotel.

With the crowd more tuned into the the Rays-Red Sox game, a loud cheer erupted when Tampa Bay's Gabe Gross and Fernando Perez hit back-to-back homers. Without missing a beat, Melrose, who threw out Monday's first pitch, told radio listeners: "The Rays just hit a second home run!"

Not real smooth, I know. But it worked. By the way, Rays won, 10-3.
