Two spring stars continued with their exploits as Brandon McCarthy and Josh Hamilton continued their strong exhibition showings. McCarthy pitched four hitless innings and hasn't allowed a run in his last eight innings. Hamilton went 3 for 3 to raise his average to .439 this spring. One of those hits was a bunt single in the first inning. Nelson Cruz followed with a three-run homer. Opponents are now hitting .091 against McCarthy, who dropped his spring ERA to 1.80.
