Desmond Jennings hits three HRs Sunday

Tampa Bay outfielder Desmond Jennings hit three homers including a grand slam and drove in six runs in an 8-5 victory over the Orioles today.

"I felt good from the first at-bat, I felt like I was seeing the ball good and I was swinging at good pitches today," Jennings said. "I felt like I was swinging the bat good. I was swinging at pitches in the zone. Hitting them on the barrel and getting to pitches inside, that's a good sign for me."

Before today's game, Jennings had no home runs and only one run batted in this spring.

Jennings is now hitting .348 and has three home runs, four stolen bases and seven runs batted in this spring.

The Rays open up the regular season against the Yankees on Friday, April 6th.

In our fantasy rankings, Jennings is our 13th-ranked outfielder.
