DEVELOPING: After being swept in a day-night doubleheader on Saturday to run their losing streak to 10 games, the Rays will try again today to put an end to things with a 1:35 p.m. game against the Orioles.

LHP Drew Smyly, improved in his last couple starts after a rough stretch, will be on the mound for the Rays. RHP Tyler Wilson starts for the Orioles.

The Rays late Saturday activated RHP Ryan Webb from the DL and sent rookie RHP Tyler Sturdevant back to Triple-A Durham. They also returned RHP Danny Farquhar to Durham after his one-day stint as the 26th man for the doubleheader.

The Rays last lost 10 straight in the middle of the 2014 season. They last lost 11 in 2009.

Lineups when available.
