Special K: Rays starter Scott Kazmir is 2-1 with a 3.26 ERA in three career starts against the Angels, including a May 10 win at the Trop that started his 6-0 run. This will be his first start, however, at Angel Stadium.

Nothing lacking: Angels starter John Lackey looks to have made an impressive return from a strained triceps, making five solid starts. He does well against the Rays anyway, with an 8-1, 2.35 mark in 10 career starts.
