Tampa Bay Rays Vs. Florida Marlins: Rays Look To Rebound Against Slumping Marlins

The Tampa Bay Rays (36-33) start their second stint of interleague play as the welcome in the Florida Marlins (32-37) for a three game set at Tropicana Field.

After losing two of three to the Red Sox, the Rays will look to respond against the Marlins, and they could catch them at a better time. The Marlins have lost 18 of their last 21 games, including their last 7. In their last series, the Marlins were swept by the Phillies in a four game set, with Cliff Lee throwing a 2-hit shutout in the series finale.

With the Marlins in a free-fall, the Rays at the very least must win the series to keep up with the rest of the A.L. East.

Game Time: 7:10 PM
Pitching Matchup: Brad Hand (0-2, 5.50 FIP) vs. Wade Davis (5-5, 5.31 FIP)
