Tonight's game is on ESPN.

Weirdly, the Rays and Tigers are meeting for the first time in 2010. After a scorching hot start to the year, the Rays are now 59-38 and holding down second place in the AL East.

No current Rays have faced Max Scherzer except for Matt Joyce, who is 0-3. The only Tiger (besides Magglio, sigh) with a decent record against Garza is Gerald Laird, who is 2-5.
