WHEN/WHERE: 1:05; Jacobs Field, Cleveland.
TV/RADIO: SportsChannel; WFLA-AM 970, WLVU-FM 106.3.
PITCHERS: Tampa Bay LHP Tony Saunders (1-2, 5.02) vs. Cleveland RHP Chad Ogea (0-1, 7.56).
WHAT TO LOOK FOR: Saunders should have something to prove, having blown a 5-0 fifth-inning lead in his last start Monday against Oakland. He also can make up for Game 4 of the World Series here last season, when the former Marlin was knocked out in the third inning. Ogea is making his third start after missing the first three weeks recovering from March 7 arthroscopic surgery on his left knee. Rays OF Dave Martinez is 3-for-6 with a homer against Ogea.
ETC: The Rays are 5-1 in road day games. Their next home game is Friday night against Baltimore.
INFORMATION: Call 825-3137.
QUOTE OF THE DAY
"It's a big series for us. We want to show them we can play here, that we're not some whipping boy."
