The Rays, coming off their first night game of the spring, will face the Orioles this afternoon in Sarasota.

Joe Smith will have all of the action on Twitter at @TBTimes_JSmith.

Most of the regulars who played last night in Fort Myers are staying back in Port Charlotte, but RF Wil Myers is on the trip and will hit  headoff for the second straight game, coming off a three-double performance.

On the mound, RHP Mark Lowe, who is making a strong push to nab a bullpen spot, will start against the Orioles. He'll face Baltimore's "A" lineup that includes Adam Jones, J.J. Hardy, Chris Davis, Matt Wieters and ex-Ray Delmon Young.

RHP Chris Archer and RHP Grant Balfour will pitch in a minor league game rather than face a familiar AL East team.

Also slated to pitch today are LHP Jake McGee, RHP Josh Lueke, RH Steve Geltz and RH Juan Sandoval.

The Rays have won four straight games and seven of eight, and are leading the Grapefruit League at 12-4-2.
