Rays lineup

Developing: The Rays, which snapped their six-game winning streak last night with a 12-inning loss, will try to bounce back today in a matinee with the A's to end their homestand.

Rookie LHP Matt Moore, coming off his first victory of the season, will start on the mound, with the Rays hoping he goes deep into the game considering their short-handed bullpen.

LHP Cesar Ramos was called up from Triple-A Durham before today's game, having last pitched Thursday, giving them a fresh arm. The bullpen pitched 8 1/3 innings Saturday after RHP Jeremy Hellickson's abbreviated start.

After today, the Rays have a day off Monday before beginning a road trip that starts Tuesday in New York against the Yankees.
