      Rays pitcher Matt Moore to start Tuesday's game

      Rays pitcher Matt Moore will make his next start Tuesday against the Marlins, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports. Moore was scheduled to make his next start Sunday, but he will receive an extra day of rest between his starts. As a result, Matt Andriese will make a spot start Sunday in his place, while Moore will be pushed back to Tuesday. While it's possible Moore will make another start before the end of the season, it's also possible Tuesday will be his last go around.

      Rays SP Matt Moore flashes dominance in no-decision

      Rays starting pitcher Matt Moore turned in seven dominant innings Thursday, striking out nine Orioles while allowing no runs on two hits and zero walks, but was stuck with a no-decision. Alex Colome came in and gave up four runs in the eighth inning to blow the game, depriving Moore of a win in what was easily his best start of the year. This was a version of Moore that we hadn't seen in a long time, so this outing qualifies as wonderful news for his fantasy owners. He next faces a Boston team that scored six runs off him Aug. 1 and eight (six earned) last Saturday -- if he can turn things around Tuesday against the Red Sox, he'll put himself squarely on the radar for next year.

      Rays SP Matt Moore gets lit up with four homers in loss to Red Sox

      Making his eighth start of the season, Rays left-hander Matt Moore got rocked in a loss to the Red Sox on Saturday. Moore gave up eight runs (six earned) on nine hits over five rough innings, en route to the 10-4 final. Moore (1-4, 8.42 ERA) gave up four home runs in the poor outing. He served up a three-run shot to David Ortiz in the very first inning. Then Mookie Betts and Dustin Pedroia went back-to-back in the third. Ortiz got to Moore again in the fifth inning--a solo shot for his 500th career blast. Moore, who missed the first three months while recovering from Tommy John surgery, has given up six earned runs in two of his last three starts.

      Rays' Matt Moore rocked in third straight loss, headed to Triple-A

      Rays pitcher Matt Moore dropped to 1-4 on the season with his third straight loss, Saturday against Boston. Moore, who was making his sixth start of the season since returning from Tommy John surgery, gave up a season-high six runs on a season-high nine hits, over a season-low three innings. Moore has given up 15 runs over his last three starts, lasting a total of 12 2/3 innings. The Rays are expected to option the left-hander to Triple-A Durham on Monday. "Matt is in a unique situation," manager Kevin Cash said, per "He is coming off the injury. So we need to factor that in. But obviously, we need Matt Moore to get back to the way he's capable of pitching. "There have been signs of progress throughout these starts and then there's been some others that have been rougher."
