ST. PETERSBURG – The Rays continue their chase of a Wild Card spot tonight at the Trop against the visiting Orioles, who come in two games back of the final playoff spot.
The Rays begin the night tied with the Rangers atop the Wild Card standings with 10 games to go.
David Price, winless in his last four starts, will face former Ray Jason Hammel.
Wil Myers is back in the lineup as the DH.
O’s manager Buck Showalter has juggled his lineup, hitting Manny Machado first and Danny Valencia fourth. Danny Valencia? Yes, he is 9-for-12 against Price.
Also, Dan Johnson returns to the Trop for the first time since he hit his two-out, ninth inning home run in Game 162 in 2011. He’s one of the left-handed hitters on Showalter’s bench.
Here are the lineups:
Hammel RHP (7-8, 5.12)
