Developing: Having scored a team record 35 runs in winning in their last three games, the Rays look to extend their roll and sweep the Padres in the process.

RHP Chris Archer will be on the mound for the Rays; LHP Christian Friedrich for the Padres.

The Rays are waiting until this morning to determine the availabiity of SS Matt Duffy, who left Tuesday's game after three innings due to soreness in his previously strained Achilles, and 2B Logan Forsythe, who was a late scratch Tuesday due to back spasms.

There is no local TV coverage today as this is among the games Fox Sports Sun chose not to broadcast.

Lineups to come when available.
