Rays' Matt Moore to start Tuesday
CLEVELAND -- Tampa Bay left-hander Matt Moore, who is tied for the American League lead in wins, will make his next start Tuesday against Detroit.
Moore (8-0) started Friday night against Cleveland but didn't return after pitching the first inning because of the game's third rain delay, which lasted 2 hours and 39 minutes.
Rays manager Joe Maddon said Moore could have started Sunday but the Rays chose to stick with Jeremy Hellickson. Tampa Bay is off Monday and begins a three-game series in Detroit on Tuesday. Moore was originally scheduled to pitch the series finale Thursday but Maddon decided to move him up two days.
