Pena Hitting Third
The Rays’ lineup will look a little different tonight with Carlos Pena hitting third.
The Rays slugger is heating up and manager Joe Maddon said he wanted to make sure Pena saw something to hit in tonight’s game. He figured if Pena was in the fifth spot, he might not see a pitch all night.
Meanwhile, Gregg Zaun is behind the plate. Zaun caught Kazmir during the left-hander’s last outing and it was his best outing of the season. So Maddon figured he’d give the pair another chance to work together.
