Extra bases

• Catcher Jose Molina was in the lineup for the fourth straight game Saturday, the first time a Rays catcher had played four consecutive games this season. Rays manager Joe Maddon said the move was based on the matchup against righty Brandon Morrow.

• The Rays made a rotation change, pushing righty Alex Cobb's start back to Wednesday, giving him eight days of rest between starts. Maddon said Cobb was not hurt and that he wanted to have Jeremy Hellickson and David Price, who will start Sunday and Tuesday, pitching on their normal five days of rest.
