Matt Moore Takes The Ball For The Rays First Road Game
The Tampa Bay Rays will play their first road game of the season against the Kansas City Royals – a team which beat them six out of seven meetings last season.
It is the first of a nine game road trip for the Rays but the 3-city 10-game road trip is something that many players look forward to. “Some players don’t feel like the season has started until we go on a road trip,” said Rays pitcher Alex Cobb  after yesterday’s game.
The Rays will once again go with a predominately right handed hitting lineup. The lineup will feature eight right handed bats with James Loney  being the only lefty.
