For starters, Rays at Angels, seeking offense



UPDATE, 6:33: Evan Longoria is not in the lineup for Triple-A Durham tonight, but it sounds like this is more of a routine day off and not any kind of setback in his rehab. He was 0-for-6 with two walks in his first two games for the Bulls as the DH.

UPDATE, 6:30: 1B Carlos Pena is out of the lineup against the lefty Wilson, and Ben Zobrist gets a day in the DH slot:

Rays lineup:

Jennings lf,
Upton cf,
Zobrist dh,
Keppinger 1b,
Roberts 3b,
S-Rod ss,
Joyce rf,
Conrad 2b,
Molina c,
Moore p

BREAKING: Held to one run again Friday night, the Rays will try again tonight to get untracked as they face the Angels in a 9:05 start.

LHP Matt Moore will face Angels LHP C.J. Wilson, in what is a rematch of last year's opening game of the division series, when Wilson was with Texas.

Offense has been the Rays persistent problem, and in their last two games as they've scored a total of three runs while going 1-for-19 with runners in scoring position.
