Despite being eliminated from playoff contention, the Tampa Bay Rays are putting their best foot forward on Tuesday night, as they look to spoil the Baltimore Orioles' chances of capturing the AL East crown.
Evan Longoria will start at third base Tuesday night when the Rays take the field for the second-to-last time at Tropicana Field in 2012. On Monday, Rays manager Joe Maddon said that it would be up to Longoria to decide if he'd want to play or rest if the Rays were eliminated.
Both Maddon and Buck Showalter announced the starting lineups, and they are as follows:
SP Miguel Gonzalez
Tampa Bay Rays
First pitch is scheduled for 7:10 p.m. ET.
