BRADENTON, Fla. (AP) - Luke Scott hit an RBI double and a single Wednesday and the Tampa Bay Rays beat A.J. Burnett and the sloppy Pittsburgh Pirates 8-2.

Jose Molina also had two of the Rays' 12 hits.

The Pirates made three errors in the first two innings, which led to three unearned runs.

Right fielder Brad Hawpe let a bloop hit bounce past him, third baseman Pedro Alvarez flubbed a high popup and second baseman Neil Walker overthrew 6-foot-4 first baseman Garrett Jones. A wild pitch by Burnett allowed another run to score.

Burnett had a bumpy spring debut. He allowed four runs and three hits in two innings.
