Wading in: Davis has won without pitching that well, benefitting from the best run support on the staff. He is curiously almost even with 20 strikeouts and 19 walks in 44 innings. He is 4-2 with a 3.09 ERA in seven starts against the Orioles, including Sunday when he went five innings for a victory.
Nothing doing: The Orioles are winless in the seven games Bergesen has pitched (including six starts). And he is winless in five starts against the Rays, posting a 9.13 ERA and failing to complete six innings.

T-shirts of the day
- 3B Evan Longoria has been on a national stage on the field and in commercials. But he was still a bit humbled Friday knowing thousands of female fans were sporting their Ladies Love Longo T-shirts. "It'll be interesting," Longoria said. "But it's cool."
- The team unveiled the Rays' Navy SEALs shirts that will be given away at Tuesday's game vs. the Yankees. The first 10,000 fans in Rays gear, or with military ID, get them. First pitch is 6:40 p.m., gates open at 4:40.
