The Rays can match the 2002 team for the best start in team history with a win today in the series finale against the Yankees.

Of course, that team lost 106 of their final 159 games so be careful what you wish for.

The 2010 team was the only other team to start 2-0. That team captured the AL East title.

The Rays offense is off to a great start, with Carlos Peña (6) and Luke Scott (3) paying off with a combined nine RBIs.

Jeremy Hellickson makes his first start of the season this afternoon against the Yankees Phil Hughes.

Here is the Rays lineup:

Jennings CF
Peña 1B
Longoria 3B
Joyce LF
Zobrist RF
Scott DH
Keppinger 2B
Molina C
Rodriguez SS
