DEVELOPING: The Rays are looking to snap a two-game losing streak tonight and have Roberto Hernandez on the mound.

After Jeremy Hellickson failed to get through the third innning on Monday in Kansas City, the Rays are no only looking for Hernandez, who has 13 losses and a 4.97 ERA, to pitch well tonight, but also deep into the game, as both Cesar Ramos and Wesley Wright were used heavily.

Evan Longoria is expected to be back at 3B tonight after a DH day on Monday.

The Angels are starting LHP C.J. Wilson, whom the Rays have had trouble with before.

Lineups when available.
