The Tampa Bay Rays look to regain their momentum out in Los Angeles on Friday as they take on the Angels. Pitcher Alex Cobb will face Dan Haren on the hill.

The Tampa Bay Rays lost their last game against the Baltimore Orioles on Thursday, putting them behind the Orioles in the wild card chase. The Rays have a chance to regain some ground on Friday as they open a three game series with the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim.

The Rays will send pitcher Alex Cobb (4-7, 5.05 ERA) to the mound Friday night. In his last start for the Rays on July 21 against the Seattle Mariners, Cobb went only two innings, having to leave the game after taking a grounder from Ichiro Suzuki off his leg, allowing two runs on three hits.

The Angels will counter with pitcher Dan Haren (7-8, 4.76 ERA). In Haren's last start on July 22 against the Texas Rangers, he went six innings allowing two runs on three hits in a win.

Friday's game is scheduled for a 10:05 p.m. first pitch. Television coverage will be provided by Sunshine Sports Network. Radio coverage will be provided by WDAE 620 AM.
