Extra bases

• Sam Fuld continues to be day to day with a mild strain of his right hamstring.

• On Friday night, the Rays will team with the Tampa Bay Lightning to promote their 20th anniversary in the National Hockey League. As part of the celebration, all pregame activities and the seventh-inning stretch performances will be related to the Lightning's celebration -- including the ceremonial first pitch from Lightning head coach Guy Boucher.

• Carlos Pena drew his 26th career bases-loaded walk in Wednesday night's 13-3 win over the Red Sox. That total ranks Pena third among active players behind Derek Jeter (30), Bobby Abreu (28) and Chipper Jones (26). Pena's 18 bases-loaded walks since 2008 are five more than any other Major League player.

• Entering Thursday night's game, the Rays had allowed just 51 home runs at home, which is the second fewest in the Major Leagues behind the Giants. In the last 20 years, only two AL teams have allowed less than 60 home runs at home over a full season: Toronto (2008, 56) and Oakland (2007, 59).
