Watch for ...

Seo so: Rays starter Jae Seo has struggled and baffled coaches along the way. He owns the second-highest ERA (8.82) and opponents' batting average (.386) among AL starters.

Marc-ed man: Jays starter Shaun Marcum makes the start for injured RHP and former Ray Victor Zambrano. The Rays have limited experience against Marcum, hitting a combined 0-for-7.

Heartbreak of the order: The Jays' 3-4-5 hitters, Vernon Wells, Lyle Overbay and Frank Thomas, have gone a combined 9-for-13 against Seo.
