Throwback Tuesday



The Rays are trying to bounce back from a frustrating Monday loss. Though the bullpen played a key role in the loss, manager Joe Maddon said he plans to stick with his current bullpen plan, which is using Jae Kuk Ryu and Gary Glover in the sixth and seventh innings, Brian Stokes in the eighth and Al Reyes in the ninth.

Maddon has another new lineup for Tuesday's game, rewarding hot-hitting Brendan Harris with another start and sitting down Ben Zobrist who has a .170 average and has not walked in 48 plate appearances. He also moved B.J. Upton to DH, playing Ty Wigginton at second and Carlos Pena at first.

Here is the lineup:
Baldelli, cf
Harris, ss
Crawford, lf
Wigginton, 2b
Young, rf
Iwamura, 3b
Navarro, c
Pena, 1b
Upton, dh
