Ray (11-5, 2.69 ERA) will look to return to top form after a rare shaky start last time out. He allowed three runs on eight hits in 4 1/3 innings and took a no-decision in a 6-3 loss to the Baltimore Orioles.

It marked Ray’s shortest start since June 18.

Ray has performed well against the Rays (90-55) this season. He has given up just six combined runs over 27 innings in four starts versus Tampa.

The Rays counter with right-hander Michael Wacha (3-4, 5.37 ERA). Wacha is 1-0 with a 2.45 ERA in two starts in September.
