UPDATE, 11:45: The Rays decided to not make any moves to bolster their bullpen, so they will roll with Bedard and the tired relief corps.

Here is the Rays lineup:
Zobrist 2b

Joyce lf
Longoria 3b

DEVELOPING: The Rays and Twins are set to wrap up their three-game series today, with a 1:10 matinee that will start barely 13 hours after Wednesday's 12-game game ended.

The Rays will have LHP Erik Bedard on the mound, and need him to go deep into the game, having used six of their seven relievers on Wednesday. And the one they didn't use, Juan Carlos Oviedo, is probably limited to one inning since he is fresh off the DL.

The Twins are starting RHP Ricky Nolasco.

Manager Joe Maddon was disappointed in Wednesday's 6-4 loss, noting it was a game the Rays played enough to win, and should have won.

Lineups when available.
