BREAKING: The Rays are making a quick turnaround to play the Angels at 1:10 today, seeking to complete the three-game sweep and extend their season-high winning streak to five.

Rookie LHP Matt Moore will be on the mound, confident he has resolved issues with his timing and delivery that impacted his first three starts.

The Angels are starting veteran Jerome Williams.

The Rays head to Texas after today's game for a three-game weekend series that completes their rugged stretch of playing 16 of their first 22 games against the five other AL heavyweights.

Word is expected soon, possibly this afternoon, that the Rays have completed a minor-league deal with DH/OF Hideki Matsui.

Angels lineup:

Aybar ss
Kendrick 2b
Pujols 1b
Hunter DH
Trumbo rf
Wells lf
Callaspo 3b

Bourjos cf
