RHP Alex Cobb on the Chris Archer-David Ortiz drama
Former Rays RHP Matt Garza returns to Tropicana Field for his second game as an opposing pitcher. Garza, who played for the Rays from 2008-10 and threw the club's only no-hitter, lost as a Ranger here last year. "Hasn't changed a bit," manager Joe Maddon said. "I really do like the guy a lot."
