Sonny at the bat

Who needs Pat Burrell when you have Andy Sonnanstine?

The Rays pitcher, forced to bat because of an error on the Rays lineup card, doubled home a run against the Indians in the Rays five-run fourth inning Sunday.

Sonnanstine lined the bal over the head of Indians left fielder Ryan Garko, who was playing a tad shallow.

It was the first extra-base hit of Sonnanstine's career.

Sonnanstine, who takes a great deal of pride in his batting ability, bunted into a force play during his first at-bat and looked at a called strike in his second.

The double raised Sonny's career average to .417.
