Angels Vs. Rays Lineup: Angels Will Try To Bounce Back With C.J. Wilson On The Mound

After losing the first two games of the series with the Tampa Bay Rays by a combined score of 19-3, the Los Angeles Angels will look to rebound Saturday night.

Los Angeles will send C.J. Wilson to the mound looking for his first win since June 26. Wilson is 0-5 in his last nine starts with his era rising from 2.36 to 3.32 during that period. The Rays will counter with Alex Cobb who is 0-1 with a 3.86 ERA against the Angels this season. Tampa Bay will be without Carlos Pena and Matt Joyce Saturday, both of whom are getting the day off.
