Rays Vs. Mets: Tuesday Starting Lineups

The Tampa Bay Rays, looking for their fifth consecutive win, host the New York Mets at Tropicana Field on Tuesday for the the first time in 11 years. And as of late, the Rays' bats are hot. In their last four games, they have outscored opponents, 29-10. While looking to continue that offensive streak, Tampa Bay will send Alex Cobb to the mound, who is 2-2 this season with a 4.13 ERA. He will be opposite the Mets' Chris Young, who will be making just his second start this season after coming off surgery to his right shoulder in April.

First pitch is scheduled for 7:10 p.m. EST in St. Petersburg, Fla. The game will be televised by Sun Sports.
