For starters, Rays vs Rangers

The Rays, fresh off their off day, will take on the Rangers tonight in the first of a three-game series.

It's all about 95 degrees and sunny here at the Rangers Ballpark - and I'm sure it'll get hotter - but tonight's starter LHP Scott Kazmir - a Houston, Tex native - is sure used to that.

Kazmir will be making his second start since coming off the disabled list - where he rehabbed a right quad strain and reworked his mechanics. He was encouraged with how his first outing went, when he gave up just two earned runs over five innings.

Kazmir is 4-0 in seven career starts against the Rangers with a 2.09 ERA, his second lowest ERA against an opponent (Seattle, 1.53).
