Braves Vs. Rays: Tampa Looking To Bounce Back In Interleague Play Against Atlanta

The Tampa Bay Rays' Alex Cobb will most likely get his first start of the season this afternoon on the hill against the Atlanta Braves. Cobb was just recalled in Friday from the Triple-A Durham Bulls and will replace the injured Jeff Niemann who is currently on the DL with fractured right fibula which occurred earlier in the week against the Toronto Blue Jays.

The Rays will be looking to rebound from Friday's 5-3 loss.

On the other side, Randall Delgado will take the hill for the Braves. The right-handed pitcher is currently 2-3 on the season with an ERA of 3.79. After faltering in late April, Delgado has started strong so far in May.

First pitch of Saturday afternoon's game from Tropicana Field will be at 4:10 PM EST.
