BALTIMORE Joe Maddon is sticking with what works.

Tonight’s lineup is the same as the one that produced 11 hits in Wednesday’s 6-2 victory against the Orioles. At least as far as the batting order is concerned. There are some position changes.

But he will send out the same nine hitters in the same order in hopes of winning the final game of this nine-game road trip.

As it stands, the Rays are 2-6. Wednesday’s win snapped a four-game losing streak.

David Price makes his fourth start of the season. He is 0-1 with a 5.82 ERA despite pitching well enough to win two of his three starts. He allowed eight earned runs in what was a 13-0 loss to the Indians. He’s allowed three earned runs in the other two starts.

Here is the Rays lineup:

Jennings CF
Johnson LF
Zobrist 2B
Longoria 3B
Joyce RF
Duncan DH
Loney 1B
Molina C
Escobar SS

Price LHP
