MINNEAPOLIS – The Rays will try to make it three straight wins tonight against the Twins at wet Target Field and they will have to do it without Ben Zobrist, who is getting the night off.
Zobrist said he’s thankful for the time off. He is hitless in his last 15 at-bats.
Kelly Johnson replaces Zobrist at second base and the No. 2 spot in the batting order.
The Rangers already lost, so the Rays can move into a tie for first place in the Wild Card standings with a victory.
Here are the lineups:
Moore LHP (15-3, 3.18)
Albers LHP (2-2, 3.35)
