After scoring 19 runs in the first two games, the Rays are looking to keep rolling tonight against the Angels with first pitch around 9:30.

RHP Alex Cobb, who has been pitching extremely well, will be on the mound for the Rays against Angels LHP C.J. Wilson, their former Rangers nemesis who has been struggling.

The start of tonight's game was pushed back from 9:05 due to a ceremony to honor the Angels 2002 World Series championship team, which C Jose Molina was a player on and Joe Maddon the bench coach.

The Rays have been lead recently by B.J. Upton, who has five homers on the thus-far 6-2 road trip and six for the month, tied for the AL lead with Pujols, Fielder and Cabrera.

Angels lineup:
