Surprising Rays host struggling Orioles

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- A win in Friday's series opener against the Baltimore Orioles would put the Tampa Bay Rays at four games over .500 for the first time since July 2015, and it's a surprising assortment of replacement players that is helping the Rays find their way.

In a series win against Cincinnati, key hits came from Trevor Plouffe -- acquired last week from the Athletics -- and Taylor Featherston, acquired for cash from the Phillies.

Plouffe, hitting .214 with Oakland, had hits in all three games against the Reds, including his first home run with the Rays. Featherston, a career .156 hitter when the Rays got him, reached base three times in Tuesday's victory and homered Wednesday.
