Breakfast with the Dodgers! His boys in blue look to win the series against the Rays in Tampa Bay this morning with rookie right-hander Gavin Stone on the mound making his third major league start and it’s tough. The Dodgers’ win last night was just the sixth home loss for the Rays this season.
Stoner is going to need help…
Tampa Bay answers with lefty Josh Fleming, who has never faced the Dodgers.

Austin Barnes begins his first game of the series, pulling the short straw to start the early morning affair. Mookie Betts is in right field. Every day Freddie Freeman is on the 2nd hole, as always. JD Martinez moves up to Will Smith’s spot in the lineup. Chris Taylor and Trayce Thompson patrol the outfield and the Miguels get the infield
James Outman remains out of the starting eleven.

Full lineups, betting odds and more stats
Gavin Stone will be looking to pitch his first scoreless first inning, or at least try to avoid giving up a few runs. The rookie has yet to pitch into the fifth inning of his major league career and has yet to consistently show his dominance.
Josh Fleming has been used as something of a massive reliever and occasional starter for the Rays this season and is making only his third start of the year. This could be an opening situation for Tampa Bay. JD Martinez is the one who has faced him the most and has 2 home runs in 13 at-bats.
