ST. PETERSBURG The Rays are looking for their season-high fifth straight win and second series sweep of the year this afternoon during the finale of this three-game series with the visiting Padres.

The Rays reached .500 with Saturday’s dramatic 8-7 victory, courtesy of Evan Longoria’s walk-off two-run homer in the bottom of the ninth inning.

Speaking of Longoria, he will serve as the DH today to give his legs a little break. Ryan Roberts will play third base.

Desmond Jennings is not in the lineup for the third straight day as he recovers from a minor groin strain.

Here are the lineups:

PADRES
Cabrera SS
Venable CF
Headley 3B
Quentin DH
Alonso 1B
Denofria RF
Guzman LF
Amarista 2B
Hundley C

Stults LHP (3-2, 4.50)

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

Hernandez RHP (1-4, 4.66)
