The Rays (7-9) try to snap a four-game losing steak and even their series against the Yankees tonight at Tropicana Field. Rays veteran lefty Erik Bedard makes his first start of the season vs Yankees RH Hiroki Kuroda (2-1, 3.86).

Centerfielder Desmond Jennings, who was used as a DH Thursday, is still experiencing soreness in his legs and is not in the lineup. He is day to day, manager Joe Maddon said.

The Rays will play David DeJesus in centerfield, Wil Myers in right and Matt Joyce in left.
