Ramos to start Game 2 after Rays win Game 1

Cesar Ramos will start tonight in the second game of this day/night doubleheader.

Manager Joe Maddon said Ramos can throw 60 pitches, which should be good for at four innings, and he will mix and match the bullpen after that.

The Rays won the first game 3-2 on Carlos Peña’s three-run homer in the eighth inning to snap a three-game losing streak.

The Phillies scored a run in the bottom of the eighth to make it a one-run game, but Jake McGee came on with two outs and got the final out as the Phillies left the bases loaded. Fernando Rodney allowed a one-out hit Jimmy Rollins in the ninth but ended the game with two strike outs for his 21st save.

David Price won his 10th game and did exactly what the Rays needed – he pitched deep into the game, saving the bullpen for Game 2.

Here is the Rays lineup for the night cap …

Jennings LF
Peña 1B
Upton CF
Keppinger 3B
Zobrist RF
Rodriguez SS
Conrad 2B
Lobaton C
Ramos P
