For starters: Chris Archer faces Tigers this afternoon
The Rays will try to avoid their first-ever four-game sweep by the Tigers this afternoon during the finale of this series.
The good news is RHP Chris Archer will not have to face Tigers CF Cameron Maybin, who is not in the lineup. Maybin is batting .591/.615/.733 with 10 RBI and four three-hit games in six starts against the Rays this season.
Archer is looking to snap a four-game losing streak.
CF Desmond Jennings (hamstring) is not in the lineup for the third straight day.
Here are the lineups:
Pelfrey RHP (2-7, 5.02)
Archer RHP (4-11, 4.76)
