April

UPDATE, 4:55: RHP Brad Boxberger threw 25 pitches off the mound in what he considered his first real bullpen session, aiming for a mid-May return from core muscle repair surgery. ...

Cash said he has been pleased with how the offense has come around though it needs to be more efficient.  ...

With a win tonight, the Rays would be over .500 for the first time since Aug. 22. ...

The Rays, per Elias, have scored 15 of their last 18 runs with two outs, and overall 42 of 70, the highest percentage (60) in the majors.

Here is the Orioles lineup:
Rickard rf
Machado 3b
Jones cf
Davis 1b
Trumbo dh
Wieters c
Hardy ss
Reimold lf
Schoop 2b
Tillman p

UPDATE, 3:10: Hank Conger is back behind the plate for the Rays, making his first start since Saturday. Overall, Curt Casali has started 9 of the last 11 games, and replaced Conger for defensive purposes on Saturday. Controlling the running game has been an issue for Conger, as he has allowed 11 stolen bases this season and 48 straight going to early last season with Houston.

Here is the Rays lineup:

Forsythe 2b, 

Miller ss,
Longoria 3b,
Dickerson dh,
Jennings lf,
Morrison 1b,
Souza rf,

Conger c,

DEVELOPING: After back to back wins over the Orioles, the Rays are looking for a three-game sweep tonight at 7:10.
