The Tampa Bay Rays continue their swing up the West Coast, starting a series with Oakland on Monday.

The Tampa Bay Rays continue their tour through the American League West on Monday, opening a series against the Oakland Athletics. Winners of two straight, the Rays will look to keep the momentum alive as the road trip continues.

On the mound for Tampa Bay is David Price. The left-hander is riding a hot streak, having won his last three starts and six of his last seven. The last time Price allowed more than two earned runs was on June 19. A win Monday would give him a league-best 15 wins on the season. He started against the A's in May, striking out 12 and allowing just one run in eight innings of work.

Oakland counters with A.J. Griffin. The rookie right-hander has three wins in his last three starts, including a six inning, nine strikeout night against Toronto in his last start.

The game starts at 10:05 p.m. Eastern. Fans can watch the game on Sun Sports.
