Mitch Talbot made the start for the Phoenix Desert Dogs in the Arizona Fall League yesterday, allowing two earned runs on four hits in 2.2 innings. He walked a batter and allowed both runs on a homerun. He threw 29 of his 45 pitches for strikes and got five outs on groundballs. Paul Phillips threw a scoreless inning in relief.
On a non-Rays note, Stephen Strasburg makes his AFL debut tonight with Phoenix.
