For starters, Rays at Angels, seeking something




 UPDATED, 7:40: Rays don't seem too concerned about a carryover from the perfect game. "Sometimes I think this team is just dumb enough to forget the things we need to forget,'' DH Evan Longoria said. .. Of bigger concern, the Rays have gone 17 innings without scoring.

UPDATED, 6:35: For those who like to keep track of such things, the Rays are 1-1 following the previous two perfect games thrown against them, and 2-2 following the no-hitters against then. They are 1-0 following their own no-hitter.

BREAKING: Coming off Wednesday's perfect game by Seattle's Felix Hernandez, the Rays are in Anaheim tonight to open a four-game series at 10:05 that looks to be a tough test.

The Angels will start four All-Stars in the series, with Dan Haren getting the ball tonight against Rays ace David Price.

The Rays have gone 17 innings without a run, since scoring two in the first on Tuesday in Seattle.

Evan Longoria is expected to be in the lineup tonight, though manager Joe Maddon said they would be cautious in assessing how he felt after the Wednesday night flight. He has played in eight of the nine games since his return from the DL following a left hamstring injury.

Lineups when available.
