ST. PETERSBURG – Big news: Wil Myers cut his hair. Said he wanted to change things up. Said it’s no big deal.

This is a big deal: The Rays and Rangers play the finale of this four-game series at the Trop. The winner will have the tie-breaker based on head-to-head matchup this season should the finish in a tie for the Wild Card spot.

Also, a Rays win would extend their lead in the Wild Card to two games, while a loss drops them into a tie for first with the Rangers.

So … big game.

Matt Moore faces Yu Darvish.

Myers is not in the lineup because of the right-handed Darvish. Evan Longoria will serve as the DH and Kelly Johnson will be play third.
