UPDATE, 11:23: The Rays are seeking their first home series win against the Indians since 2013. ... This is only the third time in Rays franchise history they have gone eight games into a season without a win by a starter: 2011, when Jeremy Hellickson got the win in their 10th game, and 2003 when Jorge Sosa did in their 17th. ... Kevin Cash led all managers in the first week of the season by going 4-for-4 in replay challenges.

UPDATE, 10:01
: Here is the Rays lineup, in what pretty much is standard form:

Forsythe 2b,
Morrison 1b,
Longoria 3b,
Dickerson dh,
Jennings lf,
Miller ss,
Souza rf,
Kiermaier cf,
Conger c,
Archer p

And the Indians lineup:
Davis lf,
Kipnis 2b,
Lindor ss,
Napoli dh,
Santana 1b,
Ramirez 3b,
Byrd rf,
Naquin cf,
Perez c,
Salazar p

DEVELOPING: After a quiet 4-1 loss on Wedneday, the Rays are back on the field early today for a 1:10 matinee that wraps up their series with the Indians.

All-Stace ace RHP Chris Archer will be on the mound for the Rays after a couple of rough outings to start the season, focusing on pitch execution. RHP Danny Salazar will start for the Indians.

Lineups when available.
