Back in the big city ...
Yankee Stadium was abuzz for Tuesday's game, but it didn't have as much to do with the Devil Rays as the return of Hideki Matsui to the New York lineup. Rays manager Joe Maddon said, "He's never fun unless you're a Yankees fan.''
The Rays announced their pitching rotation for the weekend series in Toronto, with Jae Seo going on Friday, J.P. Howell on Saturday and rookie Brian Stokes on Sunday in his second major-league start.
Tuesday's game was the first in Yankee Stadium for a number of Rays, including Delmon Young, Jason Hammel, Ben Zobrist, Juan Salas and Shawn Riggans.
