For starters: Rays vs. Giants, on Moore's birthday

18

June

UPDATE, 2:34: Cash said he has seen signs of the rotation coming around but is still waiting for a run of quality, if not dominating, starts. .... With three starting OFs on the DL (Guyer, Kiermaier, Souza), Cash said he is trying to piece the lineup together, hoping someone will get hot, singling out Mahtook as a candidate. He also said he has been impressed with Decker's at-bats. ... The Rays game notes list TBA for Indians series, but they are set to stayi in order, with LHP Drew Smyly on Monday, LHP Blake Snell on Tuesday, RHP Chris Archer on Wednesday.

DEVELOPING: The Rays are trying to get back to their winning ways this afternoon when they take on the Giants at 4:10.

It's a Turn Back the Clock day with both teams wearing '70s-style uniforms. There is a post-game concert by The Fray.

LHP Matt Moore will be on the mound, pitching on his 27th birthday. The Giants are starting RHP Albert Suarez, a longtime Rays minor-leaguer who actually teamed with Moore in 2008 at rookie-level Princeton.

The only big change in the Rays lineup is that Mikie Mahtook is starting in center ahead of Desmond Jennings.

Here is the Rays lineup:

Forsythe 2b,
Miller SS,
Longoria 3b,
Morrison 1b,
Pearce DH,
Dickerson lf,
Mahtook cf,
Decker RF,
Conger c,
Moore p

And here is the Giants lineup:
Span cf
Panik 2b
Belt 1b
Posey dh
Duffy 3b
Crawford ss
Pagan lf
