ST. PETERSBURG – The Rays and Rangers begin the night tied for the top-spot in the Wild Card for the second time during this four-game series.

The Rays are looking to rebound from last night’s 7-1 loss that snapped the Rangers seven-game losing streak.

RHP Jesse Crain (right shoulder strain) will throw 20 pitches tomorrow in Sarasota in an Instructional League game. The Rays are expected to activate him after that.

The Rays recalled INF Tim Beckham today. Manager Joe Maddon said he will be used primarily off the bench for late-inning defense and pinch-running.

Here are the lineups:

RANGERS
Kinsler DH
Andrus SS
Rios RF
Beltre 3B
Pierzynski C
Moreland 1B
Adduci LF
Profar 2B
Martin CF

Holland LHP (9-9, 3.49)

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

Archer RHP (9-7, 3.03)
