ST. PETERSBURG The Yankees make their first trip to the Trop tonight for the beginning of a three-game series.

New Bucs cornerback Darrelle Revis will throw out the first pitch.

Matt Moore (3-0, 1.00 ERA) will face CC Sabathia (3-1, 2.57) in a matchup of lefties.

The Rays are coming off their first series sweep of the season, having taken three from the A’s over the weekend. The suddenly homer happy Rays have homered in seven straight games after hitting only four homers through their first 11 games.

Rays manager Joe Maddon juggled his lineup once again, moving SS Yunel Escobar from ninth to sixth. 1B Sean Rodriguez will hit fifth for the first time this season. 2B Ryan Roberts gets another start and is batting second for the third straight game.

Here are the lineups:

YANKEES
Gardner CF
Francisco DH
Cano 2B
Youkilis 1B
