For starters, Rays at Mariners, seeking eight with Longoria back
The Rays are looking to extend their season-high winning streak to eight games tonight against the Mariners in Seattle, with first pitch around 10:10 p.m.
LHP Matt Moore, who has been one of the hottest pitchers in baseball of late, will be on the mound, against M's veteran Kevin Millwood, who has been on of the game's least successful.
The Rays are expected to have Evan Longoria back in the lineup after he took Monday off for precautionary rest of his left hamstring.
Moore is 3-0, 0.51 in his last three starts, and is 8-2, 2.93 in his last 12 starts, after going 1-5, 4.76 in his first 10. With a win, he would give the Rays a rookie start with double-digit victories for the fourth straight year.
Here is the Mariners lineup, with Justin Smoak called up from Triple-A:
Dustin Ackley 2B
Trayvon Robinson LF
Jesus Montero DH
Kyle Seager 3B
Casper Wells CF
Justin Smoak 1B
Miguel Olivo C
Eric Thames RF
Brendan Ryan SS
Kevin Millwood P
