DEVELOPING: Coming off another walkoff win, the Rays are looking to continue their latest roll tonight against the Blue Jays.

RHP Roberto Hernandez will be on the mound for the Rays against Jays LHP J.A. Happ.

After a six-game losing streak, the Rays have won three straight and moved back to within one game of the AL East leading Red Sox.

Happ will be making his third big-league start since returning to the Jays after hit in the head by a line drive during a May 7 game at the Trop.

Though playing well again, the Rays may be looking for another bat to bolster their lineup. There has been mutual interest in a reunion with former Rays OF/DH Delmon Young, who was released last week by the Phillies.

Lineups when available.
