The Tampa Bay Rays just wrapped up a series in Canada with the Toronto Blue Jays. They'll come back across the American border for their next series, but not by much. They now head to Minnesota to face the Twins for a weekend set. The first game is on Friday night at 7:10 and can be found on Sun Sports.

The pitching matchup for Friday's game is about the most inexperienced you will ever see. Rays starter Matt Moore and Twins starter Liam Hendricks have four decisions between them for their entire career. Moore has the MUCH better career record at 1-1 as opposed to Hendricks' 0-2. Moore is certainly the more highly regarded prospect among the two, but Hendricks will be pitching at home. In a matchup of unprovens, it will be difficult to see who ones out on top.

We'll have plenty more on this series throughout the weekend here on SB Nation Tampa Bay, so keep it locked to this StoryStream for all of the latest news and updates.
