The Tampa Bay Rays snap back into action Saturday, following the postponement of Friday evening’s game due to inclement weather. As we noted Friday, the Rays shuffled their starting rotation around because of the rainout. The pitching match-ups now look like this: Price vs. Lester on Saturday, Cobb vs. Buchholz on Sunday, and Hellickson vs Dempster on Monday.
Rays 4/13/13 Starting Lineup:
- Evan Longoria is batting third in the lineup for the first time this season, in front of Ben Zobrist.
- DH Luke Scott (right calf strain) ran in the outfield and is hoping to run the bases Saturday.
- Friday’s rainout will be made up June 18th as the first game of what now will be a day-night doubleheader.
- Most of the Rays went out to Fenway Park to work out in some form Friday even though they knew the game was postponed.
- Saturday’s game is the first of their five on Fox, while Sunday’s game will be nationally televised on TBS.
- A tweet from the official MLB twitter account: “Freaky Friday at Wrigley: Dioner Navarro leads off 9th with homer for @Cubs and we’re tied 3-3.” Freaky Friday, indeed.
