Up next for Tampa Bay Rays: vs. Baltimore Orioles


vs. Orioles


What's new: The Orioles bounced back a bit after being swept by the Rays last weekend, winning three games against Seattle, and beating Cy Young winner Felix Hernandez. On the other hand, 3B Mark Reynolds (.174) and 2B Brian Roberts (.215) still aren't hitting. RF Nick Markakis sat out Wednesday with the flu but returned Thursday. SS J.J. Hardy was activated off the disabled list, and reliever Josh Rupe was dropped.

Key stat: Markakis has recorded a hit in 151 consecutive series, the longest such streak in the majors, dating to a May 2008 blanking by the Rays.

Connections: None

Series history: Tied 114-114; Rays lead 61-54 at the Trop.
