The Tampa Bay Rays are coming off a series against the Seattle Mariners, and they stay at home this weekend to face the Oakland Athletics. The Rays will send David Price out to the mound for the first game of the set on Friday night. First pitch is scheduled for 7:10 pm and can be found on Sun Sports.
The Athletics don't have a sparkling record, but they always seem to outplay their talent. Didn't you see Moneyball? This could be a difficult test for the Rays as they continue to adjust to life without Evan Longoria.
