For starters: Rays at Mariners, with Delmon at DH
With the offense continuing to struggle, Rays manager Joe Maddon decided to put Delmon Young in the lineup even though the Mariners are starting tough right-hander Hisashi Iwakuma tonight.
The Rays were held to two runs in losing to the Angels on Thursday, and have scored more than three only once in the last eight games. Since July 31, they have averaged only 3.2 runs per game (29th in the majors) and hit only 26 home runs (ranking 23rd) - and are 13-19. Until then, they were 64-43, averaged 4.65 runs a game and hitting 119 homers.
