TODAY: DEVIL RAYS VS. TWINS

WHEN/WHERE: 1:15; Metrodome, Minneapolis.

RADIO: WFLA-AM 970, WLVU-FM 106.3.

PITCHERS: Tampa Bay RHP Rolando Arrojo (2-2, 5.40) vs. Minnesota RHP LaTroy Hawkins (0-2, 5.86).

WHAT TO LOOK FOR: This is a rematch of the starters from the wild April 13 game that the Rays won 13-12 in 14 innings at Tropicana Field. Arrojo didn't get out of the third that night, allowing two home runs. Hawkins hasn't won but had a strong outing Saturday, holding Seattle to one run on three hits over 6 innings. He throws a good fastball and has been working on his breaking pitches.

ETC.: Arrojo has Metrodome experience. He pitched there for the Cuban national team in a 1992 exhibition against the U.S. team.

INFORMATION: Call 825-3137.

BY THE NUMBERS

1: Hits from the Nos. 6-7-8-9 spots in the Rays batting order in the past 42 at-bats.

4: Times the Rays have been shut out, an American League high.

24: Consecutive starts by Quinton McCracken until he rested Wednesday.

35: Double plays made by the Rays, a major-league high.

QUOTE OF THE DAY

"You hit the ball hard, it's caught, you have a bad at-bat. Before you know it, it's an O-for night, 0-for-3 or 0-for-4 or whatever. But at any time I think it can go the other way."
