FORT MYERS, Fla. (AP) Liam Hendriks worked out of a jam after left-fielder Josh Willingham lost a fly ball in the sun, but the Minnesota Twins still lost to the Tampa Bay Rays 8-5 Tuesday.

Hendriks, trying to win a spot in Minnesota's rotation, allowed two runs and four hits in three innings. He pitched three innings, giving up two runs off four hits while striking out three.

Rays pitcher Matt Moore struggled with his mechanics. He struck out two but gave up two hits and two walks in 2 2-3 innings.

Juan Sandoval, trying to make the big leagues with the Rays after losing sight in his right eye seven years ago, struck out one and earned the save, his second of spring training.
