ST. PETERSBURG Matt Moore, who has pitched the Rays to a victory six times this season in a game following a loss, will attempt to do that for a seventh time this afternoon when the Rays meet the Yankees at Tropicana Field.

A win today and Moore will improve to 9-0, making him the fifth youngest starter since 1916 to begin a season 9-0.

Rays manager Joe Maddon said Roberto Hernandez will remain in the rotation. Maddon said the staff has detected a few things Hernandez can change that should make him successful.

David Price gave an update on his status. He expects to throw at some point early next week, but that’s as far as he knows in terms of a schedule for his rehab. He said he does not have a timetable for his return.

Here are the lineups:

Gardner CF
Cano 2B
Wells LF
Hafner DH
Adams 3B
Suzuki RF
Nix SS
Overbay 1B
Romine C

Nuno LHP (1-1, 1.13)

Jennings CF
Roberts 2B
Scott DH
Longoria 3B
Zobrist RF
Loney 1B
Rodriguez LF
Molina C
Escobar SS

Moore LHP (8-0, 2.29)
