The Tampa Bay Rays begin a ten-game road trip tonight starting with a three-game series in Baltimore against the surging Orioles. Shane McClanahan (6-0, 2.03 ERA) will look to be the first big-league pitcher to seven wins on the season, as he takes on Kyle Gibson (4-1, 4.66 ERA). First pitch is scheduled for 6:35.

Kelley Returns As Cleavinger Heads To IL
The Rays Monday also placed left-handler Garrett Cleavinger on the 15-day injured list with what the team is calling a right knee sprain, suffered during a rundown play in the tenth inning of Sunday’s win over the New York Yankees.
The 29-year-old initially tried to stay in the game, but after throwing a warmup pitch, was removed from the contest.
To take Cleavinger’s spot on the active roster, right-handed Trevor Kelley was recalled from Triple-A Durham. Kelley made one appearance for Tampa Bay this season, allowing two runs on as many hits April 15 in Toronto, but has pitched to a 3.95 ERA in 11 outings with Durham this year.
