For starters, Rays at Jays, seeking something

August

UPDATE, 4:15: Keppinger is first tonight, with Scott at DH. All four callups - Brignac, Gimenez, Ramos and Thompson - are here, will be activated Saturday. Lineup: Jennings lf Upton cf Zobrist ss Longoria 3b Joyce rf Keppinger 1b Scott dh Roberts 2b Molina c Hellickson p BREAKING:

Having been shutout Thursday  for the sixth time this month - and in a span of 25 games - the Rays are looking for something, anything, tonight when they face Toronto's Brandon Morrow, who has been tough on them in the past.

The Rays will start Jeremy Hellickson, who has pitched well at times in his second full season, but has been inconsistent.

The Rays lineup will be interesting to see, as manager Joe Maddon hinted yesterday that Carlos Pena would be on the bench for a third straight game with Luke Scott at first again. Pena was out on the field early this afternoon with hitting coach Derek Shelton for what looked to be an extensive indiviualized session.

The Rays have lost five of their last six.

Lineups when available.
