For starters: Archer on the mound tonight vs. Tigers
Chris Archer looks to build on his impressive start tonight when he faces the Tigers at Tropicana Field.

Manager Kevin Cash is sticking with the same lineup that produced Tuesday’ 5-1 win against the Tigers, with the exception of left field, where Shane Peterson gets his first start and Corey Dickerson moves back to DH.
The Rays, 7-8 overall, are 6-2 at home.
