• When David Price walked Jerry Hairston to lead off the seventh inning of Friday night's game, the Rays' left-hander ended a club-record streak of 35 1/3 innings without a walk. He set the previous record of 27 in July.

• On Friday night, Alex Cobb (concussion) made his third rehab start for Class A Charlotte against the Twins' affiliate in Fort Myers, Fla. The right-hander allowed three runs on five hits in 4 1/3 innings with two walks and five strikeouts. "Cobb came through well," Rays manager Joe Maddon said. "I think everything is going to be on track [for his return]."

James Loney made his first appearance at Dodger Stadium on Friday night since getting traded from Los Angeles to Boston last August. He went 3-for-4, giving the Rays' first baseman his 11th three-hit game of the season. Nine of those three-hit performances have come on the road.

Zack Greinke started for the Dodgers on Saturday and Clayton Kershaw will start Sunday, making for back-to-back days that the Rays have to face former Cy Young Award winners. Entering Saturday's contest, the Rays were 45-19 against former Cy Young winners, including a 7-4 mark this season.
