Indians Vs. Rays Preview: Tampa Bay Looking To Bounce Back From Monday Loss

Still struggling to stay within reach of the Yankees, the Rays have done themselves no favors in the few games since the All-Star Break. After losing a three-game series to the Red Sox, the Rays dropped the first of a four-game series against the Cleveland Indians on Monday.

Taking the mound for the Rays on Tuesday will be the resurgent Matt Moore. After an undefeated June and a win over the Yankees in his first start in July, Moore clawed back to an even 5-5 record after a rough start to the season. However, that four game winning streak was snapped in his last start when he allowed five runs in just under five innings.

For the Indians, Josh Tomlin will be taking the mound, looking for his third consecutive start. Considering his 5.45 ERA, Tomlin is fortunate for his 5-5 record after earning a win with an excellent two hit outing through seven innings against the Rays.

The first pitch of Tuesday's game is scheduled to be thrown at 7:10 p.m. and will be televised on Sun Sports and STO.
