Rays 8/10/12 Starting Lineup:
Noteworthiness: The Rays enter tonight’s game with a 59-52. They’re six games out of first, and a half out of second in the AL East. They are also a half game behind Detroit, Oakland, and Baltimore who are tied in a very tight wildcard race. Tonight promises to be the start of a very fun three game series.
Longo is batting fourth as the DH for the fourth day in a row. Can you blame Joe for wanting him in the lineup after amassing three RBI on four hits over the last three games? Maddon also has Zobrist at shortstop and hitting fifth, and Keppinger at third base and hitting seventh. Let’s see if the Rays can make it a four game winning streak. Let’s Go Rays!
