For starters, Rays-O's and, oh no, rain ...



The Rays (73-72) will try to stay above .500 with a win tonight, but they may have to beat the Orioles and the rain, as clouds have quickly darkened the skies here in Baltimore. The field remains set up for batting practice however, so the grounds crew must not be expecting much and the latest forecast is only for a 30-percent chance of showers around game time.

The Rays will have what amounts to their normal lineup against Baltimore righty Chris Tillman, and will have Andy Sonnanstine on the mound for what may be his last start of what has been a rough season.

Here is the Rays lineup:
Bartlett ss
Crawford lf
Longoria 3b
Zobrist rf
Burrell dh
Aybar 1b
Upton cf
Zaun c
Iwamura 2b
Sonnanstine p

And for the Orioles:

Pie, cf
Izturis, ss
Roberts, 2b
Markakis, rf
Mora, 3b
Scott, dh
Wieters, c
Wiggingon, 1b
Fiorentino, lf
Tillman, p
