Extra bases

• Outfielder B.J. Upton turned 28 on Tuesday. On Aug. 3, he became just the eighth player in Major League history to reach 100 homers and 200 stolen bases before turning 28.

• Outfielder Sam Fuld and catcher Jose Lobaton will visit the All Children's Hospital in St. Petersburg on Thursday as part of "Rays Kids Spirits Day."

• Reliever J.P. Howell extended his scoreless innings streak to 25 2/3 on Monday night. It's the longest current streak in baseball and 2 2/3 innings shy of the longest stretch by a Major League reliever this season (the Angels' Ernesto Frieri 28 1/3).
