ST. PETERSBURG The Rays go for their third straight win tonight when they meet the visiting Blue Jays.

Matt Moore takes the hill looking to carry the momentum from his last outing – a win at Yankee Stadium – into this start.

This will be the 14th time in Moore’s 16 starts that he’s faced a team with a .500 or better record. The Rays are 9-4 in those games. That game snapped a three-game losing streak for Moore.

Desmond Jennings returns to the lineup after taking a day off Monday.

Ben Zobrist moves to the DH for only the second time this year in an effort to give him a night off his legs yet keep his bat in the lineup.

Kelly Johnson makes his sixth start of the season at second base.

Here are the lineups:

JAYS
Cabrera DH
Bautista RF
Encarnacion 3B
Lind 1B
DeRosa 2B
Davis LF
Rasmus CF
Arencibia C
Isturis SS

Buehrle LHP (4-4, 4.60)

RAYS
Jennings CF
Rodriguez LF
Zobrist DH
Longoria 3B
Myers RF
Escobar SS
Loney 1B
Molina C
Johnson 2B

Moore LHP (9-3, 4.13)
